One of the reasons for the outrage might have been the way in which the match ended. In the 93rd minute, when the home team were leading 1-0, a penalty was awarded to Monchengladbach against AS Roma defender Chris Smalling, which seemed ridiculous. The penalty was given when the ball seemed to hit the face of Smalling.
