Using VAR technology has been a very controversial topic since the idea of using it in football matches. Despite the criticisms, more and more leagues are using this technology.
After many years to find a way for wrong decisions , VAR will debut tonight in the Champions League after using it in the Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga and the World Cup.
At the end of last year it was decided that this technology would be used in the Champions League, starting with the 1/8 phase of the Champions League stages. This decision was taken by the UEFA Executive Committee.
This decision made for the first time in the Champions League will used tonight, in the match between Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, as well as in the match between AS Roma and Porto.
“We are convinced that the Champions League will benefit from this technology as it can help referees and create room for correcting mistakes,” said UEFA chief Roberto Rosetti.
