At the moment, the Major Division of Colombian Football has not issued an official statement confirming the suspension of the two judges. However, the recidivism of Mauricio Mercado from Sucre, who was serving a sanction, draws attention.

In September 2023, América de Cali faced Envigado in the league as a visitor in a match that also had refereeing controversies after the ineffectiveness of Mauricio Mercado, who did not sanction a clear handball inside the area for the Red Devils.

For this action, Mercado was suspended for five months by Dimayor; However, the referee was appointed as a VAR assistant, precisely for the match between Envigado and América de Cali for the seventh date of the rented venue.

According to the interpretation of José Borda, arbitration expert, those in charge of dispensing justice at Polideportivo Sur de Envigado were wrong in their decision, since the infraction within the area exists on the part of the Envigado player, Santiago Noreña, given that he relies on Argentine striker Rodrigo Holgado.

“TURN OFF AND LET’S GO The penalty that the VAR gives at minute 90 + 3 is unprecedented, in favor of the local, Noreña from @EnvigadoFC leans on Holgado from @AmericadeCali and Paz del Escarlata puts his arms on Noreña’s abdomen and they give a penalty for restraint, it is NOT understood that they are beeping. Terrible work!”

The situation generated the discomfort of the largest shareholder of the American team, Tulio Gómez, who launched strong accusations for the controversial arbitration in dialogue with Banda Deportiva.

“Today they robbed us at the stadium. They deny us a penalty and then they sanction us one that is not (…) that is a robbery, yesterday the refereeing was also perverse. We will send a letter to Dimayor complaining, and vetoing this VAR and the referee.”

América de Cali went ahead on the scoreboard after 25 minutes with a goal from Harold Rivera, who made it 1-0 with a header after a pass through the same route from Yojan García that the former Independiente Santa Fe sent to save.
