Diego Alves controversial handball against Athletico-PR in Copa do Brasil!

Diego Alves controversial handball against Athletico-PR as the match ended in a draw.

Athletico-PR and Flamengo played their first leg in quarter finals of Copa do Brasil.

The match ended in a 1-1 draw, which suits Flamengo a lot better than Athletico-PR. The reason for this is that return leg will be played at Flamengo’s stadium.

There was one bizarre moment in this match that should have likely ended in a red card but nothing happened.

Former Valencia keeper, Diego Alves, who is currently playing for Flamego, made a bizarre handball.

He managed to catch the ball outside his penalty area when he was pressured by one of Athletico’s players.

It was very obvious, but Alves didn’t even get a yellow card for his handball. He should have gotten a direct red card for preventing a clear goal-scoring opportunity, but he got away with it.

A big decision that definitely influenced this match.

Flamengo has a big advantage going home, but they will still need to get a result against Athletico to advance to the next round.
