Atalanta continued their winning streak with a 1-0 win at 10-man Cagliari on Sunday but only after the Sardinians had a goal disallowed for an almost imperceptible and accidental handball early in the game.
There were no protests from Atalanta who were waiting to restart when the referee indicated a VAR review which showed that the ball may have faintly brushed the Simeone's hand in the build-up.
It did not change the direction of ball and Simeone's hand was not outstretched, however, the new rule states that any handball in the build-up to a goal means it has to be disallowed.
Atalanta were able to pace themselves after that although Cagliari were twice close to equalising near the end.
Atalanta, who have won their last 10 games in all competitions, stayed fourth with 63 points and moved within one point of Inter Milan while Cagliari are 11th.
