The performance of the referees in the two postponed derbies that took place on Wednesday is commented by the collaborator of the show “Derby” of POLITIS 107.6, former international referee Nikos Savvas, through gipedo.politis.com.cy .
Read how he evaluates the refs of the two matches.
APOEL – AEK
– Nikolas Neokleous is very good.
In the 32nd minute, De Vincenti was properly given a red card for violent play against an opponent after VAR intervention. The offense is out of phase, something that may increase the player's punishment.
In the 38th minute, Apostolakis was not given a second yellow card, even if he was covered by the rules.
At 45 + 3 ′ in the phase where APOEL requested a penalty, there is a hand from an AEK defender but the TV cameras do not clearly help the VAR as to whether there is a violation.
At 65 ′, AEK was not given a penalty correctly. There is some pressure on Triskovski but not so much for the end of the sentences.
APOLLO – OMONIA
-Timotheos Christofi is very good.
In the 8th minute, Apollo was not given a penalty, no offense was given to Matei.
In the 70th minute, Omonia was not given a penalty correctly, Loizou is trying to win it, the referee who could not give him a yellow card was not fooled.
