Borussia Dortmund is arguing with the referee after the draw in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 at PSV Eindhoven. He gave a controversial penalty after a tackle from Hummels. The criticism is great. BVB consultant Matthias Sammer goes even further.

According to Matthias Sammer, there are “too many decisions against German teams” in the Champions League. The background to his criticism was the controversial penalty against Borussia Dortmund in the 1-1 draw in the first leg of the round of 16 at PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday evening. “I would like to advocate showing more personality in the committees, naming things clearly, clearly standing up to people again, and not putting up with it. I think Borussia Dortmund are now taking their sixth questionable penalty in the last two years. It’s about the meaning of the game,” said the BVB advisor on Amazon Prime.

It’s time “we attack UEFA.” Also those responsible for appointing the referees. What kind of job do they do? That’s a catastrophe! What kind of people do they employ? This isn’t a trial-and-error situation. You can’t do that when it’s about being or not being in a sporting sense.”

Hummels first played the ball during a tackle in his own penalty area, but then also hit opponent Malik Tillman. Referee Srdjan Jovanovic pointed to the spot, the decision was not corrected by the video referee. “Zero percent penalties for me. Tillmann was laughing his ass off on the pitch, they were all grinning at me for minutes,” said Hummels in outrage. PSV captain Luuk de Jong converted the penalty in the 56th minute and thus canceled out Dortmund’s lead through former PSV professional Donyell Malen (24th).

“VAR has made referees worse,” says Hummels

The 35-year-old veteran saw the fact that referee Srdjan Jovanovic pointed to the spot after his alleged foul play and thus deprived BVB of the victory as a clear wrong decision. “We are on the completely wrong path in this regard. Unfortunately, I have the impression that the VAR has made the referees worse. I used to think the referees were better,” complained Hummels. A short time later he followed up again, picked up his cell phone – and gave his followers on the short message portal X the following note: “What a joke about a penalty against us. Yet again!”

Sammer shared this assessment without reservation. “A referee has to make decisions for football. He must then consult the rules when making clear decisions. But this situation, just as we discuss it, is not a penalty in the knockout competition in the sense of football, regardless of Borussia Dortmund, of Leipzig, regardless of other constellations,” he said. RB Leipzig also recently complained about the refereeing performance in the first leg of the round of 16 against Real Madrid when the club had a goal disallowed.

Hans-Joachim Watzke was also immediately reminded of the previous, equally controversial penalty whistles against BVB. “It’s slowly enough!” the angry managing director told the SID: “This referee decision is a blatant mistake.”

BVB coach Edin Terzic referred to similarly unsatisfactory incidents in the past: “This has been with us for a while. It is the third time that we are discussing the referee after a game in the knockout phase of the Champions League.” This means that the Dortmund coach is likely to call the penalty whistles against BVB in March 2023 in the duel with round of 16 opponents FC Chelsea and in April 2021 in the quarter-finals against Manchester City.

BVB coach Terzic points out the shortcomings

Terzic was still one of the moderates in the Dortmund camp, while others were much harsher on the referee and the VAR team. “The anger is very great. When you have decisions like that against you that are not 100% correct, it hurts,” Sebastian Kehl confessed. The BVB sports director accused the Serbian referee of not watching the scene again on the TV on the sidelines: “He knows how important the game is. In that situation he could have looked at it, maybe even should have.”

On April 13th there will be the second leg in Dortmund, from which the lessons of the first leg must be drawn – and in which referee Jovanovic is more of a side note. At least according to BVB coach Terzic. “We take too many penalties, that was a big issue in the winter preparation,” he said, “that only comes about because we don’t defend decisively enough.”
