Referee Pairetto Puts in Unconvincing Performance in Lazio’s 2-1 Loss to Inter

By Apollo Heyes -

Referee Luca Pairetto did not have a good performance during Inter’s 2-1 win over Lazio last night.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 37-year-old Italian referee did not have a convincing match yesterday, emblematic when he mistakenly gave Stefan Radu a red card before revoking the decision in the 70th minute.

Pairetto gave five yellow cards in total during the match, with four of them going Lazio’s way, and he generally failed to be an imposing figure on the pitch.

Inter fans were also unhappy that Lautaro Martinez’s opening goal was called off for offside, with the VAR reply showing how minuscule the distance was between the Nerazzurri forward and Lazio defender.

The 37-year-old Pairetto has overseen seven Serie A matches so far this season, giving 34 yellow cards, one second yellow card and one red card in that time. He has also pointed to the penalty spot four times.
