Crazy assault in the Copa Libertadores! Emilio Zelaya (Arsenal) punches an opponent in the face

Aaahh South America. Your weather is beautiful and your footballers are lunatics.

This clip comes from a Copa Libertadores match between The Strongest and Arsenal de Sarandi in which The Strongest ran out 2-1 winners.

Drawing 1-1 and already down to 10 men, Arsenal brought on Argentinian forward Emilio Zelaya.

7 minutes later, Zelaya was off for an early bath after punching an opponent in the face.

His idiocy meant his team had to hold on for a draw with 9 men. They were unable to do so and lost 2-1.

Watch supersub Zelaya assaulting an opponent below (skip to 0:44 for the punch):
