Why did Sergio Asenjo go up for a late corner in Atletico Madrid’s defeat to Rubin Kazan?

It was the first leg. Atletico Madrid were pushing for an equaliser at home against a 10 man Rubin Kazan side.

In the 93rd minute they inexplicably sent their keeper, Sergio Asenjo,up for a corner.

Rubin Kazan hit them on the break and now take a 2-0 lead back to Russia against one of the tournament favorites.

This is why you don’t send your keeper up for a corner in the first leg. Asenjo blamed his manager Diego Simeone for the decision.
