Watched the African Champions League final on BeinSports last night, second leg between Wydad Casablanca of Morocco and Esperance de Tunis of Tunisia.

First leg finished 1-1, second leg Esperance were 1-0 up at home when it all became a farce. Wydad scored an equalizer, but the ref disallowed if for offside. It was a close call but should have been given, the referee didnt bother asking for VAR though so goal didnt count.

Wydad eventually refused to play on until VAR was checked, things got a bit heated, and thats when it was announced that VAR wasnt working.

The game was then held up for 80 minuteswhile Wydad refused to play and the FA officials tried to work out what to do. Rumors that the game had been canceled and would be replayed later, but eventually they decided Wydad were to blame, so game called at 1-0 and cup to Esperance.

Hope the European final is less controversial.
