25 minutes in and AC Milan should be leading Juventus 2-0, but for a poor call by the referee the score remains 1-0, with Antonio Nocerino scoring the only goal. But Sully Muntari should be on the scoresheet as well, his goal having clearly crossed the line. Gigi Buffon may have managed to catch the ball, but considering his body was halfway across the line when he did so, the goal should have stood. But the whistle didn't blow and Juve played on, attacking Christian Abbiati's goal while Muntari was still celebrating.
The officials on Fox Soccer might be discussing the need for goal line technology, but we all know what will really be discussed should this ghost goal prove decisive: match-fixing. Or, at least, calciopoli, a return to encouraging referees to make calls in favor of a specific team. The Old Lady should do their very best to turn this around and earn a decisive win, because if they don't, their hands will be sullied -- whether or not actual fixing exists.
