“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,” said Tulio Gómez in statements to Banda Deportiva.

The largest shareholder of the Scarlet team reaffirmed his intention to ask Dimayor that the arbitration team made up of Edwin Trujillo, Sebastián Vela, Jhon Parra, Alejandro Moncada, Heider Castro and Mauricio Mercado not be appointed again for league matches.

In September 2023, América de Cali visited Envigado in a match that had refereeing controversies after the decision of Mauricio Mercado, who did not sanction a clear handball inside the area for the Valle del Cauca team.

For this action, Mercado was suspended for five months by Dimayor; However, the man from Sucre was appointed as a VAR assistant for the match between oranges and scarlets, which again had refereeing errors.

According to the interpretation of José Borda, arbitration expert, those in charge of administering justice at Polideportivo Sur de Envigado were wrong in their decision, since the infraction exists within the area; However, it is on Noreña’s part, given that he is supported by 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 Red Devils 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.

When it seemed that those led by Cesar Farías would take the three points for the sky branch, the controversial play involving Luis Paz and Santiago Noreña was presented.
