Real Madrid grabbed a vital goal against Club Brugge on Tuesday in a call many initially believed should have been ruled out for offside.
With Brugge shockingly in front 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu in a Champions League match, Madrid grabbed a lifeline through a Sergio Ramos header.
The Spaniard met a cross from Karim Benzema with 10 minutes gone in the second half, cutting Brugge's advantage in half.
The goal was given initially, though it appeared it would be waved off after replays seemingly showed Ramos behind the last defender when Benzema's cross was played.
However, after a video assistant referee check the goal was surprisingly given, with Ramos shown to be onside by the thinnest of margins.
There were plenty of reactions to the goal on Twitter with many beside themselves that the goal was awarded, while others believed that it was a clear example of VAR working as intended.

Sergio Ramos thought he'd side his disaster class with a goal, VAR wasn't having any of it 😂— RF9 🇧🇷 (@SambaRole) October 1, 2019
VAR just ruled this Real Madrid goal onside. It continues to be the worst innovation in football history (unless Arsenal benefit from it). pic.twitter.com/ANdLgpLVhC— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 1, 2019
TV cameras just deceived us all. That was the worst angle of all time for offside. VAR done brilliantly to give Real Madrid the goal. Ramos was clearly onside. pic.twitter.com/CXRSS3xO4m— FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) October 1, 2019

10 - Sergio Ramos has scored in a 10th different season in the Champions League, becoming just the second defender to do so in the competition after Gerard Pique (also 10). Controversial. pic.twitter.com/SrvxHxj2U3— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) October 1, 2019
It's clear and obvious, VAR is brilliant. #UCL— Ronan Murphy (@swearimnotpaul) October 1, 2019
With the goal Ramos became only the second defender to score in 10 different Champions League seasons, alongside international team-mate and club rival Gerard Pique.
Madrid would go on to grab a late equaliser from Casemiro but could still only manage a 2-2 draw at home to the Belgian side, who ended the match with 10 men.
