If Banti (on the monitor) and Marcenaro (on the pitch), last night at the Stadium, had had in your hands the SAOT, the story would be resolved in a matter of seconds. Indeed, it is not excluded that VAR and AVAR have not already had the opportunity to feel it in their hands. Since in the secret rooms of Lissone the Semi Automated Offside Technology it is not something absolutely unknown. It has been talked about for some time, FIFA had announced it as a great referee novelty in view of the World Cup in Qatar in November / December, Uefa anticipated them making it already available in the Uefa Super Cup final played at the Olimpico in Helsinki, Finland, between Real and Eintracht and then launched it from the group stage of the Champions League. And probably not in the distant past it will also be baptized in Italywhich has always been a land of regulatory experiments (we are still one of the most “performing” leagues from an arbitration point of view).
In reality, in a semi-unknown laboratorylike those who are under the Gran Sasso, so as not to be heard by alien spies, the SAOT has already been tested, it seems even for a few weeks. Obviously, if technology is to be implemented for the benefit of truth and greater justice in the field, no one gets begged. And so here it is from this summer, when the two top football organizations (Fifa and Uefa) had announced the online landing of the new offside extension, even in our house, Lega and Federcalcio have begun to think about it. Indeed, not only to think about it. And so already somewhere in Lissone, throwing it there with nonchalance, they began to try and understand how it works. The images, provided by NVP, the Media Company that provides video and support to the VAR of Lissone (born in 2007, has already reached a very high standard, has already studied the infinite possibilities to improve quality especially in a delicate sector like the Video Assistant Refereebut has the handbrake pulled by different contracts between the two Leagues), are already absolutely guaranteed, the rest will be done by the 12 dedicated cameras that allow the system to generate 29 ‘data points’ per player 50 times per second, calculating its position with absolute precisionwith the ball equipped with an internal sensor that will send its position to the direction 500 times per second.
Then there is the other big news, again awaiting approval by the International Board. This is the famous – and much requested – challenge, the one that already stands out in tennis, volleyball, basketball (seen a couple of reviews during the last European Championships, a show with a lot of explanation by the referees before – on what they had to go to see – and after – on what they saw and based on what they decided), so to speak. And if it is true that in Turin it would not have been useful (if the images are not there, they are not even there on request), it would have been very useful in Lecce with a 100% fulfillment rate. In the sense that, if Baroni and Stroppa had always asked for a revision, they would have always held the possibility since they would have hit them all: three penalties (two for Lecce and one for Monza) not seen by Pairetto-Di Martino are a splendid spot for the call from the benches.
