Real Madrid played a 1-1 draw against Manchester City in the Champions League semifinals. Afterwards, the Madrilenians were furious that Kevin de Bruyne's equalizer was approved at all. It can be seen that the ball was completely over the sideline in the previous situation, so head coach Carlo Ancelotti believes that the VAR should have intervened.
Bernardo Silva kept a high ball in, after which de Bruyne crossed it. Real Madrid then captured the ball, forfeited it right back, and from the counter, De Bruyne shot razor-sharp into the corner from a distance. Afterwards, it could be seen that Silva's ball had been over the sideline. "The ball was clearly over the line and the technology confirmed that," Ancelotti ranted at the press conference. beIN Sports 3D technology already confirmed Tuesday night that the ball went over the sideline just before De Bruyne's goal.

"I don't understand why the VAR didn't intervene," Ancelotti continued about the incident. "The VAR should control this kind of situation." Ancelotti also received a yellow card, which he said was unjustified. "It's crazy that the referee didn't see that. He gave me a yellow card while I wasn't even on the pitch. There were players on the field who deserved a yellow card more than me. The referee was too distracted anyway, because we should have gotten a corner just before the equalizer too."
Whereas VAR can rely on goal-line technology in situations near the goal, it is not present on the sideline. Another possible explanation is that Eduardo Camavinga captured the ball. This created a new game situation. As a result of the draw, Real Madrid needs to get going at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester City is the absolute favorite to advance to the final.
