Vasco once again had reason to complain about the refereeing in the Campeonato Carioca. In this Wednesday’s game, against Nova Iguaçu, two moves bothered the club, both involving Rossi. In both the first and second half, the attacker suffered harsh tackles, not marked by referee João Marcos Gonçalves Fernandes.

In addition to these two games, a move in the club’s debut in Carioca, against Boavista, also bothered Vasco. On that occasion, defender Capasso was hit by an elbow and suffered a cut on his head. Referee Wagner do Nascimento Magalhães did not even issue a yellow card and also did not mention what happened on the scoresheet. At this stage of Carioca, the games do not have VAR.
