did something similar.

The match between Atlético Madrid and Getafe was tied without goals and the Argentine managed to open the scoring... from the substitute bench.

It is true that he scored the goal on the field, but the referee validated it at the request of the VAR, when he had already been replaced and ended up celebrating with his jacket on.

Correa took a rebound from the goalkeeper in the area and Correa unleashed a terrific right hand that went between the post and the goalkeeper, who was recovering from Thomas Lemar's cover.

However, the referee considered that the Argentine was in an advanced position and did not allow the game to resume due to the VAR call.

While Miguel Mateu Lahoz -yes, the one from the World Cup in Argentina against the Netherlands- reviewed the play, the Atlético coach, Diego Simeone, arranged among other changes for Yannick Carrasco for Correa.

Four minutes later, the referee changed his mind and marked the center circle: it was a goal.

Unlike other goal celebrations with suspense, this one had the particularity that the author was no longer on the field: with his jacket on, he jumped from the bench to hug his teammates on the field of play, who were looking for him for the celebration.

In three minutes, Correa scored a goal that he could not celebrate, was replaced and returned to the center of the scene to celebrate it with his teammates who were still on the field.

The game ended tied 1-1 because at the end the Turkish Enes Ünal appeared to signal equality, a result that leaves the colchonero in fourth position in LaLiga and 15 points behind leader Barcelona, ​​with one more game.
