While the RFU is in a state of shock from arbitrariness in the match “Spartak” – “Sochi”, in the Russian football championship on Monday there were two more referee scandals.

Today during the game “Rotor” – “Zenith” Artem Dzyuba scored a goal against the Volgograd club with a violation. The replay clearly shows that Dziuba was offside. However, the referee of the meeting, Alexei Matyunin, did not notice this violation, and the VAR judge Yevgeny Turbin for some reason did not intervene.

The second scandal occurred at the match “Rubin” – “Lokomotiv”. There, in the 25th minute, Lokomotiv goalkeeper Guilherme knocked down a Rubin player. The goalkeeper was supposed to be shown a yellow card and a penalty was assigned to the gate of “Lokomotiv”, but the referee Sergei Ivanov did not take any action, and video assistant Nikolai Voloshin was silent.

After that, Rubin’s coach Leonid Slutsky showed emotions in the under-stands and was removed.
