Mestalla will test the use of the VAR on Saturday

Clos Gómez gave a talk on Wednesday to the players and the coaching staff on the times in which the VAR will be used in LaLiga 2018.19


This Saturday, on the occasion of the 47th edition of the Trofeo Naranja that will have Valencia CF play against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Mestalla will test the use of VAR (Video assistant referees), which will be implemented in LaLiga 2018.19.

Before the start of the competition, referee Clos Gómez had an explanatory talk on Wednesday with the staff and the coaching staff in which he addressed the cases in which the VAR will be applied. As the referee has emphasized, "the VAR is not a video referee, it is an assistant who advises the referee in exceptional decisions, but the referee always has the final decision".

In what cases will the VAR be implemented? As it has been transmitted to the squad with the VAR will only be used four cases: goals, direct red cards, penalties and identity confusion.
