How Suarez Was Punished For Peeping Into VAR Monitor During UCL Game

Former Barcelona star, Luis Suarez picked up what must surely be the strangest yellow card of his career during Atletico Madrid’s trip to Moscow on Tuesday evening.

With Atletico already 1-0 up, hosts Lokomotiv Moscow almost forged themselves a chance to equalise in the 20th minute when the ball struck Hector Herrera’s arm in the penalty area.

The decision went to a VAR review as referee Viktor Kassai trotted over to the touchline monitors to watch a replay of the incident.

However, Kassai was joined by Suarez, who decided to sneak a glimpse for himself.

Unfortunately, the Uruguay striker crept a little too close for Kassai’s liking, with the referee first doling out a quick yellow to Suarez for entering the VAR review area before also awarding the spot kick to Lokomotiv, which was duly converted by Anton Miranchuk and the game finished 1-1.
