In the first leg of the Champions League, 1/8 final against Madrid, former Real Madrid, and Juventus head coach Fabio Capello commented on Atalanta midfielder Remo Froehler’s penalty (0-1).
Head referee Tobias Stieler showed the 28-year-old a straight red card for a foul on Ferland Mendy near the penalty area of the Bergamo team in the 17th minute.
“The referee had the game ruined. It’s yellow here. It would have been great if, under the same conditions as Real Madrid, Atalanta could have had such an important game,” Capello told Mundo Deportivo.
“Even Zidane couldn’t believe it! Did you see him laughing? Atalanta was unlucky, but there will be another game in Madrid. Anything can happen. It is enough to score and not concede.”
