“Purpose-line expertise is one thing you should use at any stage, but it surely’s not necessary,” he mentioned. “At present it was not used as a result of Bayern selected to not pay for it.
“Subsequent week on the Emirates, Arsenal have chosen to make use of it as a result of we expect it is truthful for the competitors. It is an issue for the competitors that not all video games have the identical degree of expertise.”
VAR reviewed an preliminary handball name within the Bayern space after a Caitlin Foord shot was blocked however noticed no must intervene, earlier than disagreeing with Eidevall’s loud appeals for a penalty after believing that Rafaelle’s shirt had been pulled into the opposing field.
“A part of me is proud, a part of me is upset that we could not be extra medical with our probabilities,” he added. “A part of me is indignant as a result of clearly VAR wasn’t working on the Allianz Area tonight. It have to be somebody sitting there not trying on the footage.
“As a result of these two penalty conditions are clear and apparent. I believe it is unacceptable. There is a shirt jumper and this handball state of affairs within the first half. I additionally suppose one is obvious.
“After we take a look at this competitors tonight highlights a number of points. VAR is just launched within the quarter-finals, with referees who I do not know in the event that they used VAR earlier than tonight. I do not know not.”
Arsenal should now win by two clear objectives to progress on the Emirates subsequent week, or beat Bayern by a single aim to convey the tie into further time and keep away from crashing out within the quarter-finals for the fourth consecutive time.
After a optimistic efficiency in Munich, the place the Gunners dominated for lengthy spells and likewise noticed an effort from Foord bounce off the woodwork, Eidevall was assured of his possibilities of reaching the semi-finals.
“We have to rating no less than one aim subsequent week,” Eidevall joked when requested what his facet must do to progress. “However we nonetheless need to handle their threats. They’re an excellent counter-attacking staff.
“However you need to be courageous with the ball and push them into their very own half. If we will hold doing that and do it in entrance of our personal followers on the Emirates, I believe we’ve got a very good probability (of progressing).”
