Tale of two halves
Cast your mind back to the 7th Feb, Barcelona took on Atletico Madrid at the Nou Camp in the Spanish Copa Del Rey (2nd leg) and it was a match that was full of surprises. There was not one but 3 red cards shown during this exhilarating match, one of which saw goal-scorer Luis Suarez facing a red card, yet Barcelona still managed to hold on to secure a thrilling aggregate victory over 10-man Atletico Madrid. Kevin Gameiro was brought on as a substitute for Atletico Madrid and stepped up to the plate to take a penalty – but he couldn’t find the back of the net and Barcelona fans relished in this, but he managed to find the back of the net later on in the match to damped down the crowds.
Sure enough, the Copa Del Rey fixture was a crazy night for football, one that had the fans on the edge of their seat, as there were a total of 3 red cards and 8 yellow cards dished out by the referee – two of the red cards were shown in under 2 minutes. Fans were quick to blast the ref in his decisions, some even claim that Atletico Madrid were clearly the better team and were robbed by those decisions – but what remains clear is the fact that this fixture gets the blood-pumping with football fans around the globe.
