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

Mainz VAR penalty madness

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.

CBI arrests two persons for trying to bribe Customs official
After a massive public outrage over the inaction of the Uttar Pradesh police, the case was handed over to the CBI on 12 April. The first FIR pertains to the alleged rape of the girl in which Kuldeep Sengar and Shashi Singh have been named as accused.

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.
