Harsh! David Navarro (Levante) shown straight red card for tackle from behind on Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)
- March 9, 2014
Already 2-0 down, Levante’s task against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu tonight was made all the more difficult when they were reduced to 10 men for a pretty harsh call.
Levante’s David Navarro was shown a ‘roja directa’ for a clumsy tackle from behind on Cristiano Ronaldo.
It was needless, but far from reckless or dangerous play, but the ref showed no hesitation in showing the red after much baying from the Bernabeu crowd.
