Some Juventus players, including Federico Chiesa, protested against the referee after the half time whistle.

According to Sky Sport, the referee Massimiliano Irrati had a silent VAR check with VAR referee Daniele Orsato and after a few seconds he gave the all-clear, confirming Milan’s goal.

Orsato thought the decision of the field referee wasn’t a ‘clear mistake’ and decided there was no reason to have a further on-field review or disallow Milan’s goal.
