During the match broadcast on TV Globo, commentator Sálvio Spínola Fagundes Filho, of Central do Apito, said the referee was correct not to score a penalty:

For me, the lion is in natural motion. It does the movement to pull the arm, not a blocking action. He has a low arm and natural movement.

Sandro Mira Ricci, who was commenting on the match on Sportf, had another explanation:

Keep the arm away from the body. It is clearly not an intended hand, but the arm is far from the body. As the space expands, (the ball) ends up hitting the arm. For me, it was a penalty.
