Shortly after the final whistle in Real Madrid’s away win at Ajax, UEFA explained the decision to overturn Nicolas Tagliafico’s first-half goal for the hosts.

The rule outlines that a player can be deemed offside without touching the ball if he prevents and an opponent from playing, or being able to play, it.

“In the 38th minute of the Ajax v Madrid first leg, Nicolás Tagliafico’s headed goal was ruled out following a VAR review,” read a tweet by UEFA’s official Champions League account.

“The referee identified that Tagliafico’s team-mate Dusan Tadic was in an offside position and interfering with the goalkeeper – preventing him from playing or being able to play the ball – as the header was being made.

“This was in line with VAR protocol and the goal was correctly overturned and a free-kick given for offside.”
