Italian report claims Lautaro’s chopped off goal vs Barca should have stood

Lautaro Martinez’s chopped off goal minutes before Barcelona’s sucker punch in last night’s 2-1 loss should have stood according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport.

The Argentine reeled away in celebration having slotted home but celebrations were short lived as the linesman had raised his flag for offside.

The Roman based newspaper state that referee Bjorn Kuipers should have consulted VAR as the ball had in fact come off of Samuel Umtiti therefore meaning Lautaro was onside and the goal should have stood.
