Video allegedly shows Cristiano’s second goal vs Atletico did not cross the line

Video: Legitimacy of CR7's second goal questioned
Thought Jan Oblak pulled off an amazing save? One video suggests he did and that the goal was wrongfully awarded.

Did you watch Cristiano Ronaldo’s second goal against Atletico Madrid and think it did not cross the line? A video has emerged arguing that could be the case ahead of Friday’s Champions League draw.

The Juventus superstar stole the show in the second leg of that round of 16 tie, as the Portuguese ace netted a stellar hat-trick. However, an argument has been presented that Jan Oblak did indeed save that second-half header which was deemed to have gone in.

In the video, a few alleged errors on the part of goal-line technology were pointed out. Number one is the size of the line, which appeared to have a dent in it.

The claim is that there was a dent in the GLT model that made the line smaller than it actually was. Additionally, the size of the ball has been called into question as the dot used to represent it was scaled down.

Finally, the boundaries of the ball were also disputed in the video. Is this a mere conspiracy theory or did goal-line technology get it wrong? Watch the video below and decide.

Whether the goal was correctly given or not amounts to nothing at this moment, as the Bianconeri is through to the quarter-finals. The 3-2 aggregate win secured their ticket to the last eight where they now await the result of the Champions League draw to find out their next opponent.
