Players summoned from changing room for halftime penalty

Mainz VAR penalty madness

He ordered both sets of players back onto the pitch so that the penalty could be taken.

After checking his monitor, Winkmann agreed with the penalty award and had to tell the players to return to the pitch, where Pablo de Blasis beat Alexander Schwolow from the spot to give Mainz the lead.

But a VAR intervention saw Winkmann call the players back from the dressing rooms after a handball by Freiburg defender Marc-Oliver Kempf was spotted on video replays.

Players were ordered back onto the pitch after retiring to the changing room at halftime, because the video assistant referee (VAR) awarded a penalty for a handball in Mainz's 2-0 win over Freiburg. The Mainz forward then picked out his teammate De Blasis who slotted home - luckily off the post.

De Blasis scored a second on 78 minutes to secure victory, taking Mainz above Freiburg on goal difference and eight points clear of automatic relegation, while putting the visitors into the relegation play-off spot in 16th.

Jazz rookie (toe) set to play Game 2 vs. Thunder, report says
Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell may not play in Game 2 against the Oklahoma Thunder due to a foot injury. Jazz coach Quin Snyder said all signs point to Mitchell being ready for Game 2 on Wednesday.

The game itself may have been otherwise unremarkable, but that didn't stop the fans from creating a spectacle of their own as they continued to display their displeasure with Monday night games.

It was not related to the penalty decision but instead a protest against Bundesliga fixtures being played on Monday nights.

Before the game began, both sets of fans waved signs reading "against Monday games" and a cocophony of whistles and vuvuzelas provided a constant soundtrack throughout the 90 minutes.

The second half was delayed by fans throwing toilet paper onto the pitch.
