A-League grand final
An A-League decider has once again experienced a controversial moment with VAR

Sydney FC were denied the opening goal in the A-League grand final against Perth Glory after VAR failed to overturn an offside call.

Michael Zullo was adjudged to have been offside in the 28th minute when he played in a ball that was bundled home by Matthew Spiranovic under pressure from Adam Le Fondre. 

Resulting replays however suggested Zullo was onside but VAR ultimately decided a clear and obvious error wasn't made and didn't overturn the decision to disallow the goal. 

That non-call leaving even those not supporting the Sky Blues shocked as VAR once again makes headlines in an A-League grand final. 

Last year's A-League grand final saw a VAR malfunction ensure Kosta Barbarouses' winning goal stand despite the Melbourne Victory striker being offside.

Sydney FC coach Steve Corica shown a yellow card after protesting this latest VAR incident.
