In social networks, the decision of Marco Antonio “el Gato” Ortíz was quite questioned, along with the absence of the VAR to review the play, although former whistler and analyst Felipe Ramos Rizo assured that it was a correct marking.

“Penalty well sanctioned in favor of Toluca on Sambueza”
Despite this comment from the ESPN analyst, users continued to question the decision of “Gato” Marco Antonio Ortíz, because for many fans it was not even a fault.
