VAR has come to the Champions League and people are already complaining.

Nicolas Tagliafico.

Remember the name.

The Ajax defender was the scorer of the first ever Champions League goal that was disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee aka VAR.

Tagliafico took advantage of a Thibaut Courtois error to give his side the lead against Real Madrid in the first leg of their knockout match.

It seemed like a pretty legitimate goal and the referee let the Ajax players celebrate for a while before deciding to re-watch the passage of play on his pitch-side screen.

But referee Damir Skomina decided that Dusan Tadic was offside and obstructing the view of Courtois.

You can watch the incident below to make your mind up.

Obviously football fans on social media were furious about the decision.

Should the goal have stood? Leave a comment with your opinion.
