The referee Dario Herrera was suspended for one date for his performance in the Super classic in which River beat Mouth with a disputed penalty at 48 minutes of the second half.
The National Directorate of Arbitration, in charge of Federico Beligoy, made the decision not to appoint the judge from Neuquén as authority and/or part of the VAR in any of the fourteen matches that will be played on the 16th date of the Professional League soccer.
The referee was at the center of the controversy after sanctioning, with one minute remaining in the match, the penalty, after considering that Agustín Sandez committed an infraction against Pablo Solari, which Miguel Borja transformed into the goal that gave him the victory to the “Millionaire”.
As a consequence of the disputed offense and the triumph of Martín Demichelis’ men, a great brawl broke out -which ended with seven being sent off- between the two teams, demonstrating that the game had gotten out of hand for Darío Herrera.
Beyond the hinge penalty and the brawl that saw seven red cards, during the development of the match, the referee ignored infractions that could have ended in the expulsions of Enzo Díaz, Milton Casco, Jorge Nicolás Figal -for a stomp on Lucas Beltrán-, Alan Varela and Luis Advincula.
