There would be “a few residual doubts,” said Brych on the pay TV channel Sky after the game in the Bundesliga. “It’s a complex scene because there are two contacts. My feeling on the pitch today was very good. It was a tad too little for me on the pitch. I think Stuttgart can be happy with the penalty today.”
After a duel between Gladbach’s Ramy Bensebaini and Sasa Kalajdzic from Stuttgart in the penalty area, Brych initially did not decide on a foul. After a message from the video center in Cologne, the referee looked at the scene again and gave the penalty. But he did not see that Kalajdzic had previously had contact with a teammate at the foot. He was also not informed of this. Bibiana Steinhaus was the video assistant for the game.
The Gladbachers had clearly complained about the decision. Silas Wamangituka converted the penalty in the sixth minute of stoppage time to make it 2-2.
