    RSL is especially lucky that the VAR overturned the goal because in looking at the replay about 10 times, it is very inconclusive because the video didn't clearly show that Quintero was offisdes and the goal probably should not have been overturned. I'm not a fan of VAR and last night's call is why. The only way a call should be overturned is if there is clear proof and error was made. The offside was not clear at all. Contrast that with last night's goal by Zlatan Ibrahmiovich of LA Galaxy. He is celebrated for getting his 500th goal but on the replay you can see his body is clearly past the last defender when he was passed the ball and he should have been ruled offside, but wasn't. Why VAR was used to disallow a very probably onside goal and not used to disallow a very clear offside goal is why it should not be used until it is more precise.
