The Argentinian assaulted to Asier Villalibre after an initial struggle between both and Jesús Gil Manzano decided to show him the red after reviewing the played in the screen after the warning of the VAR. A very unlucky action by part of a frustrated Read that it could involve him a hard sanction.

Like result of this pressure so asfixiante by part of the 'lions', the '10' culé hardly generated danger in attack and happened quite unobserved. It did not attain to feel important in any moment and managed without penalty neither glory by a final of Supercopa that wanted to carry.
