Italy: VAR Once Again Causing Debate In Serie A
The use of video replay technology to help referees has again become a contentious issue in Serie A following a series of incidents in the opening few weeks of the season.
Referees and the pitchside monitors are again likely to be in the spotlight as Serie A resumes at the weekend with leaders Juventus visiting Udinese on Saturday and second-placed Napoli hosting Sassuolo on Sunday.
Juventus, already six points clear, have a 100 percent record this season with seven wins in Serie A and two in the Champions League.
The debate is centring not so much on whether the VAR (video assistant referees) system should be used, but how often.
The use of VAR was authorised in March by soccer’s law-making body IFAB after a series of trials around the world, including in Serie A last season.
