Guilherme Siqueira leaves the ground, flies through the air to take out Gareth Bale! [Video]

This was a shocking, reckless tackle from Atletico Madrid’s Guilherme Siqueira in the first half of tonight’s Spanish Super Cup.
The Brazilian full-back, who signed from Granada this summer, went on a one man mission to take out Gareth Bale as the Welshman broke down the wing.
Siqueira left the ground, and led with both legs as he flew through the air, and then stuck out his right leg to make sure he caught Bale as the Madrid man tried to skip over the challenge.
Only a yellow card for this, could easily have been red for leaving the ground and taking out Bale with such clear intent.
