Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw yellow cardboard for an entrance similar to that of Antoine Griezmann, who at Atlético-Liverpool went to the street due to an involuntary flying kick that hit Roberto Firmino's head
The fans and players of the Athletic of Madrid finished tremendously outraged with Daniel Seibert, referee of the party between the group rojiblanco and the Liverpool. The German expelled in the second part to Antoine Griezmann for hitting in the head of Roberto Firmino after raising the leg too much to control a ball. The French did not see to come to the Brazilian and gave him a dangerous plantillazo in the side of his head.
In spite of the fault of voluntariedad of the played and although the one of Macon did not see to come to his rival, the referee did not have doubts and took him out red direct by the dangerousness of the action. The attacker colchonero raised a lot his leg and this always can have some risk in case that some player walk near. In this case, the international 'canarinho' appeared out of nowhere and carried a patada voladora that cost him to the '8' the expulsion.
The VAR agreed with the criterion of the referee and decided not going in to correct the colour of the card. This is something that also bothered to a lot of followers of the Athletic, although surely no as much as see that in another meeting of this third day of Champions League, a player of the Milan had rid of the red and had received only yellow after a 'patada' resembled the one of the ex attacker of the FC Barcelona.
It treats of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, that against the Port wine also gave him in the head to a rival with the iron after raising the leg too much. In his case, however, especially taking into account his more than 1,90 of height, did not raise the leg as much as Antoine, that hit directly in Firmino without need that the Brazilian bent . In the action of the Swedish, Mbemba bent the head to touch the ball and caused that the Nordic gave him in the head directly.
Played alike, but that have nuances
Nevertheless, in the one of Ibra, the one of Malmo himself go to the footballer of the Port wine, by what raises the leg in search of the ball knowing that there was some option to arrive late, something that with Griezmann does not occur because the Frenchman did not see to come to Firmino. They are, therefore, played alike, but that have several nuances that the referee and the VAR could take into account to the hour to punish it with yellow in place of with red. It was as it was, there are reasons to think that both had to have had the same punishment, by what the fans of the Athletic probably was even more annoying now.
