BET Central’s Best Moments from the Weekend: 31 Jan- 1 Feb
Another beautiful weekend of sport is complete, so the BET Central office selected the best moments of the weekend.
VAR in Spain
In the match between Fuenlabrada and Girona in the Spanish second division, there was genuine chaos for over two minutes. Cristobal was originally sent off for a reckless high boot. VAR then changed this to a yellow and brought him back from the changing room.
The first thing Cristobal does when he gets back onto the pitch is confront a Girona player just to get a second yellow and be sent off again.
Amazing, just watch until the end.
Japan Sevens tackle
A massive HIT at the Sydney Sevens on a very unsuspecting ball carrier… must watch.
Third generation Maldini debuts at Milan
The MALDINI LEGACY continued at Milan ths weekend as Daniel Maldini, son of AC Milan legend Paolo and grandson of Cesare, made his Serie A debut in a 1-1 draw with Hellas Verona.
Unlike his family predecessors, who were both defenders, 18-year-old Daniel is an attacking midfielder.
Cesare won four Italian titles during his time as a player, then had two spells as Milan manager.
Paolo, whose 647 games is a Serie A record, won the league seven times as well as five Champions League titles.
Another of Paolo’s sons, Christian, played for Milan at youth level and is now plying his trade in the Italian lower leagues.
🇮🇹 Daniel Maldini made his debut today for AC Milan. That’s now three generations of the family to represent the club.
Cesare Maldini made his debut in 1954.
Paolo Maldini made his debut in 1984.

Man City v Spurs shows why we love sport
Spurs beat Man City 2-0 on Sunday but the if you saw the stats and watched the game, you would have been bemused by the eventual result. It was a match that showcased the beauty of sport.
Firstly, Spurs gaffer Jose Mourinho’s emotional rollercaster was caught on camera, it was a thing of beaty.
Then, Dutchman Steven Bergwijn marked a remarkable debut with a stunning snap-volley.
And lastly, have a look at the post match stats which indicates dominance from the visitors, but in sport, you can take things for granted and Spurs took their chances to snatch a massive win for the club and its manager.
This is bloody brilliant. Mourinho was celebrating Lloris’ penalty save on Gundogan but then when he remembered Sterling had a yellow card and Mike Dean didn’t book him for the second time for the dive, he was absolutely furious.
Vintage Jose 😂
