PRO's Inside Video Review series is back, as PRO manager of video review operations Greg Barkey takes us through all the VAR calls from Weeks 9 and 10 in MLS, going over two penalty kicks, a pair of red cards, and an offside call.
Barkey starts with the match between the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC on Sept. 9, when Montreal's Victor Wanyama had a goal waved off for offside, which was flagged for review from the booth. The goal wound up standing, but was it the right call?
The next call came from Real Salt Lake's 5-0 blowout defeat to the Colorado Rapids on Sept. 12, when RSL's Douglas Martinez was given a red card for an off-ball infraction that was initially missed on the field.
Barkey also tackles the penalty-kick fiasco between Inter Miami CF and Atlanta United on Sept. 12, when Atlanta United's Cubo Torres had his rebound finish taken away after Ezequiel Barco's original shot was saved. But the Five Stripes were awarded a retake, as it was ruled that a Miami player had encroached as well.
Montreal are featured again for the next call, as the Impact's Emanuel Maciel was originally issued a yellow card for a tackle on Vancouver's Cristian Dajome, but wound up getting sent off for the foul after the review.
Finally, Barkey takes us through the red card on Vancouver's Lucas Cavallini, that saw the forward get sent off for the Whitecaps earlier in that same match.
