“This is not a free kick against Spartak at all. Rubin’s goal: a new arbitration scandal in the RPL?

Referee Kukulyak decided not in favor of the rojiblancos. Analysis by Igor Fedotov.

Spartak failed in the third game in a row. And if you add the cup game here, then in the fourth. This time the ball flew into the gates of Spartak Kazan, but this episode raises a lot of questions.

Late in the first half, Ruslan Litvinov made a tackle in his penalty area and Marat Apshatsev collapsed on the grass. Referee Yevgeny Kukulyak signaled for a free kick, although on replays it appeared that the Spartak player played the ball. A minute later, Rubin leveled the score, however he failed to do so with a direct free kick. Ugochukvu Ivu was the first on the rebound, and Daniil Khlusevich unsuccessfully stuck his head under the opponent’s blow.

Soccer referee Igor Fedotov analyzed the controversial episode. According to the expert, Kukulyak made the wrong decision in favor of Rubin. Fedotov believes that Apshatsev should have received a yellow card for simulation.

“Kukulyak made a mistake by conceding a free kick to Rubin. For me, this is not a free kick against Spartak at all, there was no foul. There was a one player simulation of Rubin. The hosts’ player himself jumped on Litvinov, he himself touched the ball. It was necessary to show Apshatsev a yellow card and assign a free kick.

Kukulyak just flirts. He tries to interpret martial arts in the same way, control the game and then operate, and this is how he remembers himself. He was also lucky that Rubin didn’t score on a direct hit from this free kick, that would have lowered the rating.

It turns out that Spartak conceded after a penalty kick, which should not have happened. It is curious that if Kukulyak had given a penalty (after all, Litvinov’s entry, apparently, was in the penalty area), VAR would have intervened in the matter. With a high degree of probability, the head referee’s video assistants would have called off the 11-meter shot. And since Kukulyak whistled a free kick, it was impossible to count on VAR.
