UEFA Champions League

The Worst Refereeing Decision in The Champions League This Season (PHOTOS)

The Champions League resumed for the second matchday in the group stages with a lot of great games happening on Tuesday night and others scheduled for today.

That being said however, all eyes were in Paris at the Parc des Prince where a clash of heavyweights in Paris Saint-German and Manchester City was happening.

The two who are beaten finalists in the last two years have been quite desperate to claim success in Europe having swept all trophies in the domestic level.

During this clash, a certain incident left many football fans with a lot of questions after a very bad tackle ended in only a yellow card for City's Kevin De Bruyne.

The Belgian in an attempt to recover the ball ended up landing his boot on top of Idrissa Gueye's shin hurting him bad as PSG players protested to the referee for a red card decision.

However the ref produced only a yellow card to De Bruyne and to be honest that is so far the worst decision have seen in the Champions league this season.

If your memory serves you well, Manchester United's Aaron Wan Bissake made the same kind of a tackle against Young Boys and got rightly sent off. Why does the rule not apply to De Bruyne having made an even more dangerous tackle?

Taking to social media, this is what fans had to say;

Timothy Welding: Yes. That's a red card all day. De Bruyne is extremely lucky to still be on the pitch. Wan Bissaka got a red card for the exact same challenge against BSC Young Boys 

UtdWesley: AWB gets a red card and Kevin De Bruyne gets a yellow for the same reckless challenge. Where is the consistency?!😤

Samuel Luckhurst: There’s the context of De Bruyne getting a toe to the ball but it’s irrelevant when he catches Gueye that high. A bad challenge that should’ve been a red card, particularly given Wan-Bissaka’s dismissal two weeks ago.

Latina: OMG I hate football Kevin de Bruyne just did want Wan Bissaka did to get a red card and he only got a yellow 😭

olavcf: De Bruyne will end someone’s career one day. Referees need to do their jobs properly. This is a red card offence
