Real Madrid-younger Rodrygo will miss El Clasico after red card for celebrating in the face of the goalkeeper for B-Team Castilla … Zinedine Zidane immersed in selection crisis after Eden injury
- Rodrygo is suspended for Sunday's Clasico against Barcelona
- Brazilian attacker sent after taking an opponent in the B team game
- 19-year-old scored an excellent solo goal to secure the Castilla team's victory over SS Reyes
- He faced the keeper and began to celebrate his face
- Referee showed Rodrygo a second yellow card and he is now suspended
- It limits Zinedine Zidane's options after Eden Hazard sustained an ankle injury
Brazilian Rodrygo scored an impressive solo goal for Real & Castilla's team in a third row against SS Reyes, ending with a cheeky dink past the goalkeeper.
The Reyes keeper took it didn't look friendly and confronted Rodrygo as he casually walked onto the field.
At that time, the 19-year-old started celebrating right in the face of the keeper, earned himself a second yellow card and a resignation. The keeper was not punished for his provocation.
It means that he is also suspended for matches of the first team, ending any possibility that Zidane calls him in his exhausted team for the Barcelona clash.
Such a possibility seemed unlikely anyway given that Rodrygo has not been in the team at Zidane for their last four LaLiga matches.
But his actions come as an irritation from Real who needs all possible options while trying to overthrow Barcelona & # 39; s two-point lead at the top of the table.
It was after Zidane met Rodrygo on Friday to reassure him and he continued to be part of his plans despite his return to the Castilla team.
Rodrygo started eight LaLiga and three Champions League games this season and scored seven first team goals.
He continues to be eligible to replace Hazard, who is set to miss the next three to four months with a broken ankle, for Real & # 39; s midweek Champions League match against Manche star City.
MARK CLATTENBURG: The stamp of Giovani Lo Celso on Cesar Azpilicueta endangered his safety … I am shaky that VAR official David Coote did not recommend a red card
- VAR would The stamp of Giovani Lo Celso was a red card
- Michael Oliver could have missed the incident because of his positioning
- The FA is powerless to ban Lo Celso retroactively because of the referral
Like everyone else, I was a shaky VAR official David Coote did not recommend a red card after Spurs midfielder Giovani Lo Celso had stamped on Chelsea & Cesar Azpilicueta.
Coote had all the corners available and should have been able to establish that this was a clear stamp that endangered the safety of an opponent.
I understand how Michael Oliver could have missed the incident because of his positioning. It happens, but that's why VAR is there. I don't know why Coote did not advise Oliver to check himself on the monitor. I'm sure Oliver would have sent Lo Celso.
The FA is now powerless to ban Lo Celso retroactively because the incident has been referred to VAR and has been checked by officials.
Coote's day went from bad to worse during the evening game, when he did not punish Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City after raising his arms and deflecting James Maddison's free kick.
] An argument could be made that De Bruyne protected his face, but at the moment he was handling the ball, his arms were away from his face and therefore he made himself bigger.
It should have been a punishment.
O Based on Coote's performance, I know for sure that Official Game Match Officials Ltd no longer allows VAR officials to play two games in one day.
VAR did its job well by awarding Burnley a penalty while Bournemouth celebrated scoring on the other side. This was always going to happen, but VAR was right. Adam Smith misjudged a cross and used the ball in the penalty area of Bournemouth.
His team then broke and scored, but VAR Chris Kavanagh did an excellent job of notifying referee Mike Dean of the handball and a penalty was correctly awarded to Burnley.
Neymar escapes red card despite appearing in the face of ELBOW Axel Witsel during PSG & Champions League defeat by Borussia Dortmund
- Neymar was lucky enough to escape a red card in PSG's 2-1 defeat by Dortmund
- The Brazilian seemed to face Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel in the elbow
- He somehow got away with a yellow card before continuing to score an away game
- Erling Haaland scored astonishing support to give the German giants an advantage
The Brazilian was closely followed by the midfielder of Dortmund for large parts of the opening game of their final-16 draw and his frustration boiled over at the start of the second half.
It was 58 minutes when Witsel fell to the ground as he tried to screen the ball with Neymar behind him.
Witsel writhed on the floor in pain when Neymar stood up to plead his innocence before Spanish referee Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz showed the Brazilian a yellow card.
Former midfielder of Liverpool and Emre Can, the new boy of Dortmund, ran to the fourth official to suggest that Neymar had thrown an elbow, but his protests were in the direction of Neymar.
To make matters worse, the former Barcelona striker scored a potentially vital out-goal for the Ligue 1 side, despite Dortmund claiming a 2-1 win thanks to a brace of sensation Erling Haaland.
Haaland stabbed in the 69th minute to give Dort the lead before Neymar equalized moments later when he tapped Kylian Mbappé's cross.
But Haaland neatly returned just two minutes later when American teenager Gio Reyna fed him the ball on a quick counter and the striker hit a powerful shot
PSG now needs a win in the second stage on March 11 to prevent him from being eliminated four consecutive seasons in the final-16.
For Dortmund that will be a difficult game, but we are a good team and we just have to continue & # 39 ;, Haaland said.

Maguire was bundled on the ground in front of the Chugea dugout in the first half, his legs and inverted studs scraping the groin of Batshuayi before his dugout.
Batshuayi subsequently fell to the ground in pain, which led to angry protests from the Chelsea bank, while Maguire claimed that the contact was accidental.
Referee Anthony Taylor referred the incident to VAR, which was quickly rejected, but the debate raged on Twitter about the intentions of the centerback.
Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas felt Maguire was lucky on the field and tweeted: & # 39; Red & # 39 ;.
Countless fans also went to social media to poet Maguire. A user with the Twitter account @ 360 Sources, tweeted: & # 39; Harry Maguire with the stupidest mistake of the season, he could easily have been dismissed. VAR with another shocking decision. & # 39;
Another fan, David Paztor, was equally destructive to Maguire: & # 39; How is the Maguire kick NOT intentional? VAR has another one. & # 39;
Understandably, Chelsea fans were adamant of Maguire's fault. Twitter user @UptheChels tweeted: & # 39; How the hell was Harry Maguire sent away there? I give up on VAR. It must go. & # 39;
Minutes after the incident, United took the lead in the first half of injury time when Anthony Martial left Aaron Wan-Bissaka to the right.

Schalke finally won the spirited German cup competition 3-2 after extra time
David Wagner became the last victim of VAR farce on On Tuesday evening the Schalke boss received a red card because he tried to help an opponent stand up.
With Schalke locked 2-2 with Hertha Berlin in the German Cup during extra time, Wagner was accidentally smashed by defender Jordan Torunarigha, who was tackled at the sidelines in the 100th minute .
The former manager of Huddersfield decided to drag the Hertha Berlin player back to his feet by gently placing his hands near the neck of Torunarigha.
Torunarigha lost his temper after being helped by Wagner, the Schalke manager shrugs off before he angrily throws a bottle holder on the floor.
The Hertha player, who witnessed to his team a two-goal lead, was then given his marsorders by referee Harm Osmers after being shown a second yellow card.
The drama did not end there, however, when VAR decided to intervene, and to the great fright of Wagner and everyone watching, the manager was given a straight red for his role on the sidelines.
Wagner protested for a while after the Veltins-Arena crowd was left astonished, but luckily for the hosts, the resignation of their manager had no negative impact on them.
In the 115th minute, Schalke turned the game upside down after delivering the winner thanks to Benito Raman.

And after the last whistle on Tuesday, Wagner revealed his shock about the red card decision.

Jose Mourinho left fuming while Raheem Sterling escaped further punishment for reckless challenge on Dele Alli … but VAR considers a tackle not worthy of a red card
- Raheem Sterling trampled on Dele Alli's only during the first half of Sunday's clash
- Sterling was booked for the tackle that left Alli wriggling on the floor
- A VAR assessment ruled that Sterling's tackle was not worth a red card
- Mourinho and his assistant, Joao Sacramento, responded with disgust to the touchline
Sterling trampled on Alli's only halfway through the first half, causing England's international struggle to fall to the ground.
Sterling tried to apologize to Alli, who stumbled from the field before returning to the Spurs Medical Team after a few minutes of treatment.
Sterling received a yellow card, but a VAR assessment of the tackle found it was not worth a red card – although Mourinho did not agree.
The Portuguese watched a repeat of the incident on a touchline monitor and then made a gesture to the fourth official who suggested that he should wear glasses.
Mourinho then continued to show his aversion to the decision as the game went on, while his assistant, Joao Sacramento, seemed equally unhappy.
Sky Sports expert Graeme Souness believed M ike Dean was right to only give Sterling a yellow card.
He said: & I think because he is standing upright, because he does not drop out, he comes away with a yellow card. If he had gone to the ground with the same challenge, I think he would be sent away.
& # 39; We know that Raheem Sterling is not that type of player. I don't think he wanted to hurt Dele Alli there, his English teammate. But I think he has been careless there, and that definitely deserves a yellow card. & # 39;
Chris Hughton, however, felt that Sterling was lucky enough to escape with a yellow one. I think it's a limit, & he said. & # 39; Sterling knew that you could see afterwards that he might have caught him.
& # 39; That makes it possible that a yellow as opposed to a red. But there will certainly be circumstances this season in which someone is sent out for that. & # 39;
The incident was the culmination of a sloppy opening of half an hour, but it seemed to bring the game to life at the end of the first half.
Manchester City received a penalty after Sergio Aguero was shot down by Serge Aurier in the penalty area.
But the effort of Ilkay Gundogan was saved by Hugo Lloris, who then plunged to stop Sterling from achieving Sterling the rebound, with the winger on the ground.
City's calls for a second penalty went to a VAR assessment, but officials found that Lloris had not made contact with the winger's outstretched leg.
Mourinho was again irritated on the sidelines Sterling receives a second yellow card and is sent away, but Mike Dean has chosen not to punish him.
But Souness again supported Sterling and said that his speed and momentum meant that he went to the ground as he stretched to the ball.
& # 39; I think Raheem already fell when he got to the ball, & he added. & # 39; Lloris is off his line, so it should have been recaptured.
& # 39; I think he's running so fast, and when the ball is there to get, you get the momentum and the excitement, he doesn't have his feet where they should be. I don't think he's diving there. & # 39;
& # 39; Getting through the Mike Dean energy & # 39 ;: Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster lent brutal yellow card to referee during goal scoring in Swansea & # 39; s draw against Preston
- Rhian Brewster showed a yellow card for the referee in the Swansea draw in Preston
- The attacker scored the equalizing goal for the Swans in a 1-1 draw at Deepdale
- But the 19-year-old was booked in the second half for a serious mistake
Brewster not only bundled the tying goal in Deepdale, the attacker also had spectators in laughter when he showed a yellow card to referee Geoff Eltringham.
Eltringham had accidentally dropped the card and the youngster, who scored his second goal in his fourth swan appearance, emulated Paul Gascoigne by theatrically pushing the card to the official.
And the 19-year-old made the incident clear by retweeting images on Twitter, accompanied by the caption: & # 39; Comi through with the Mike Dean energy. & # 39;
Brewster, who is under contract in Liverpool until 2023, tapped 33 minutes on Andre Ayew's cross, just five minutes after Scott Sinclair had given the hosts the lead.
But it wasn't all positive for the England Under-21 international because Eltringham only showed Brewster a yellow card for ten minutes in the second half.
The attacker was probably happy to avoid a red card after he seemed to raise both feet in a challenge on North End midfielder Ben Pearson.
The draw leaves Swansea four points behind on the playoffs in eighth place, while Preston is one point and one place above their opponents in the championship table.

Powell was about to come down when Hill bumped his head, leaving the 27-year-old scrum-half immobile on the grass when the TV referee made the verdict of a penalty attempt and a red one Map. Powell did not succeed in his assessment of the head injury, but was good enough to view the second half from the couch.
The first half continued in the same ferocious spirit and more controversy could come on Friday after Blake Austin Wigan & Morgan accused Morgan Smithies of gushing his eye.
Wigan was midway through 12-10 thanks to the penalty attempt and an earlier piece of magic by Bevan Frans, seemingly to pass and then to push through.
Warrington stopped despite the fact that he had been reduced to 12 men, but they were back to 11 after an hour when Frans was eliminated by Mike Cooper while walking down his own stairs.

& # 39; It was never a way out & # 39 ;: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blows & # 39; joke & # 39; red card for Nemanja Matic after Manchester United left the Carabao Cup
Matic was sent a second yellow card for half an hour in the second half when he blocked City's Ilkay Gundogan.
The Serbian midfielder, who brought United back into the game after scoring in the first half, received his first booking when he polluted Riyad Mahrez.
Solskjaer felt referee Kevin Friend and his fellow officials had made the wrong call by sending him out.
He said: & # 39; Of course it's hard to get here and score a goal with 11, let alone 10. It was never a broadcast. Absolutely a joke for me. How often have they criticized us? & # 39;
Solskjaer added: & # 39; The first is not a yellow card. He's out of luck. I do not agree with that decision.
& # 39; We had a chance towards the end, but that made it harder of course. & # 39;
Both Darren Fletcher and Micah Richards, who appear as experts during Sky Sports coverage. , agreed with the United manager.
Former United midfielder Fletcher thought referee Friend's decision to send Matic away was bad, especially because he thought the midfielder had not had contact with Mahrez.
& # 39; I don't think Matic should have been sent away, & # 39; said Fletcher. & # 39; The first is very hard because he is not making contact.
& # 39; And the second is clever from Gundogan, I don't think there is enough contact there and the referee has bought it. & # 39;
Former city defender Richards thought it was a crucial moment that led to one of United & # 39; s better artists being broadcast, and suggested that Friend the nature of the fixture.
He said: & # 39; That moment was crucial for the game. I thought Matic was brilliant today and I don't think either should have been a yellow card. If you make mistakes, every player is booked every week.
& # 39; It's a derby, sometimes you want to see the challenges in these games. It has spoiled the game. & # 39;
