Despite Michel’s demonstration of regret, São Paulo was not satisfied with the penalty and president Julio Casares stated that he will make a formal complaint to the CBF about the issue. The main complaint is the VAR analysis at the origin of the bid, where Luiz Araújo could be offside.

I have always supported the professionalization of arbitration and believe in the seriousness of the work. However, measures are needed so that situations like the one that occurred in yesterday’s match do not happen again, even more so in matches and competitions of great magnitude, as in our game with Corinthians for the Copa do Brasil. We will keep in touch with the CBF, in addition to filing our question’ said the president.
