Chris Sutton: 'Scandalous' Sergio Ramos deserves lengthy ban for 'thuggery'

Postado Novembro 08, 2018

But captain Ramos was again at the centre of a controversial moment with the scoreline at 0-0.

Sergio Ramos left his mark on Milan Havel during Real Madrid's 5-0 rout of Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League. However due to both the referee and his assistants missing the clear act of aggression - and VAR not being used in this season's competition - the defender escaped what would've been a clear red card.

Ramos went unpunished after the incident and later apologised to Havel, insisting he did not set out to hurt him, even if the nature of the challenge was inappropriate.

The collision left Havel crumpled on the floor as blood started to pour from his nose.

Havel was looking to break forward when Ramos moved across to challenge for the ball, and as the Spaniard clears it, his elbow apparently makes contact with the Czech.

The Champions League holders are 4-0 up in their clash thanks to a Karim Benzema double and goals from Gareth Bale and Casemiro in Group G.
