Why are accidental handballs automatic yellows now? Really harsh on Rennes.

I can’t believe any fan or player wants to see that sort of thing given as a pen. Humans (mostly) have arms. He’s not done anything wrong. To effectively lose the tie on that is simply unfair.

So what exactly are United doing for Basaksehir's first goal. Like why is not one defender goal side of Ba? That's schoolboy stuff. Not only is nobody goal side but they are miles away from Ba. Do United realise you're onside if you're in your own half?

I don't think either incident deserved a yellow card. There was only slight contact for the first pen. The handball was totally accidental. I think the ref has to give a pen under the current rules but I don't see why it's a yellow card.

Agree, just cos it's a foul doesn't mean it's a yellow. Ruined what should have been an interesting contest.
