VAR decision

I've just rewatched the Olympiakos goal chalked off and his foot was clearly several inches onside,, imagine if that was given the other way? I think it's probably the worst VAR decision Ive ever seen. [www.youtube.com]

I think you line up his left shoulder not his foot, so it was marginally offside according to the current interpretation (although indiscernable to the naked eye).

Fair point, i was focusing on the feet but as there is no discernible advantage to leaning forward as the feet propel the player to the ball, surely the law needs to be amended. Imagine if this was Wolves and we were knocked out after that

Looking at the lines drawn across the pitch it looks to me as if they gave him offside because of his shoulder. If it had been against Wolves, as several similar decisions have this season, I would be an angry wolf. The referee gave the goal and VAR overturned it. Obviously I am pleased it worked in our favour but a ridiculous decision. Scrap VAR.
