Controversial Decision in Sevilla vs Fiorentina Match

Posted on May 7, 2015 at 8:00 AM


Controversy strikes in the Europa League Semi-Final as Sevilla FC felt they should of been awarded a penalty early on in the match.

However, the referee instead blew for half-time, much to the frustration of the Spanish side and their coach Unai Emery.

Judging by the video-replay, the Fiorentina defender seems to make little, if any, contact with the ball in the 16-yard-box.

Should this incident have been a penalty for Sevilla FC?
