An enraged football fan has started a change.org petition to request a replay of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg tie between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
The Spanish side, down 4-0 from the first leg and needing to win by five clear goals to qualify – managed to win by 6-1 to mount an improbable comeback.
But the win was marred by the performance of the referee, who awarded Barcelona two dubious penalties and denied PSG a clear one in the second half.
Thus one fan known as Luis Melendo Olmedo has started a petition to have the match replayed. Hosted on change.org, Olmedo said the poor performance of referee Deniz Aytekin influenced the tie and led to PSG’s elimination thus necessitating a replay.
The petition has so far surpassed 200,000 signatures, but it’s highly unlikely UEFA would take any action as drastic as ordering a replay of the tie.
