Freaky penalty helps Mainz past relegation rivals Freiburg

Freaky penalty helps Mainz past relegation rivals Freiburg

After checking his monitor, Winkmann agreed with the penalty award and had to tell the players to return to the pitch, where Pablo de Blasis beat Alexander Schwolow from the spot to give Mainz the lead.

The Freiburg team eventually emerged back onto the pitch, where Winkmann explained to a bemused Streich that it was a penalty for the home side.

Mainz climbed to 15th on goal difference above Freiburg who fell to 16th, the relegation playoff spot.

A weird video assistant referee (VAR) decision caused mayhem in a Bundesliga game on Monday night when two teams were ordered back on to the pitch at half time because the referee chose to award a penalty after watching a replay on TV.

De Blasis followed the penalty, officially recorded in the seventh minute of first-half stoppage time, with a second goal in the 78th minute to seal the win.

But Freiburg's players were already off the pitch and entering their changing room when they had to be called back.

The Freiburg keeper gifted Mainz possession inside his own penalty area, and Colin Quaison squared the ball to provide De Blasis with an open goal.

Protests also delayed the initial kickoff, and the whole game took place to the sound of shrill whistles as supporters made their displeasure known with the Bundesliga. The Mainz forward then picked out his teammate De Blasis who slotted home - luckily off the post.

The game kicked off and, for 45 minutes, not a great deal happened.

After the stewards cleared the paper strands, they threw another round they held back in reserve to delay the second half even further.
