Quite how Sergio Ramos and Diego Costa got away without a booking during Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Saturday night will remain a mystery if you watch some of the videos below.
Footage has emerged this evening, via Spanish TV channel Cuatro, showing Sergio Ramos aim spittle from his own mouth at Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa.
It seems highly unlikely La Liga will look into this but Ramos should be ashamed. This behaviour is not befitting of one of the most decorated defenders in the modern game.
Costa and the Real Madrid defender had a running battle throughout a tempestuous derby with the Brazilian appearing to head butt Ramos early on. Then, after being spat on, the Atletico Madrid attacker seems to spit on his own hand and flick it at the Spaniard.
Incredibly, Costa and Ramos have previous with a notable incident from last season when the Los Blancos defender elbowed the then Rayo Vallecano forward.
First video is of Sergio Ramos spitting on Diego Costa. Followed by a second showing their running battle throughout the Madrid derby. Third video shows the Ramos aggression from last season.
