Mainz and Freiburg players called back to pitch after VAR-awarded penalty

Mainz VAR penalty

Mainz climbed to 15th on goal difference above Freiburg who fell to 16th, the relegation playoff spot.

Daniel Brosinski tried his luck before half-time and his shot took a deflection off Freiburg defender Marc Oliver Kempf's hand.

Referee Guido Winkmann, who was also on his way to the tunnel, ordered the players to return so that Mainz's Pablo De Blasis could take a penalty for a handball that the VAR noticed after the halftime whistle had blown.

A bizarrely awarded penalty and a goalkeeping howler helped Mainz to a vital 2-0 victory over Bundesliga relegation rivals Freiburg on Monday (Apr 16).

Mainz remained the stronger team in the second half, and De Blasis wrapped up victory 11 minutes from time after an embarrassing error from Alexander Schwolow.

Vincent Kompany did, with images showing the City captain celebrating at his in-laws' house where he was having dinner. City could yet finish the season with the most points, goals and wins from a single Premier League campaign.

But Freiburg's players were already off the pitch and entering their changing room when they had to be called back.

The Freiburg keeper gifted Mainz possession inside his own penalty area, and Colin Quaison squared the ball to provide De Blasis with an open goal.

The players then returned to their dressing rooms, however the fans weren't quite done as Mainz supporters suddenly started hurling toilet paper onto the pitch, meaning the second-half was delayed even further as the stewards were left with an almighty clean up.

The game itself may have been otherwise unremarkable, but that didn't stop the fans from creating a spectacle of their own as they continued to display their displeasure with Monday night games.
