Tonight’s game between Real Madrid and The Old Lady turned on a very controversial incident.
Trailing 2-1 at the time but still very much in the game, Juve had Giorgio Chiellini sent off just after half-time for what the referee deemed to be an elbow on Cristiano Ronaldo.
As the gif above, and video below shows though, Chiellini merely leaned across Ronaldo with an outstretched arm; it was a clear foul but there was definitely no elbowing motion, as the incensed Juve players protested.
Ronaldo, it must be added, definitely made the most of it, clutching a part of his face that clearly wasn’t touched.
