Rodrygo picks up bizarre red card with Castilla and will miss El Clasico

23 Feb 2020

Rodrygo was sent off in Real Madrid Castilla‘s 2-0 win over San Sebastian de los Reyes and, as a result, will be suspended for Sunday’s Clasico against Barcelona.

The Brazilian youngster scored a fine solo goal, dribbling from the halfway line before slotting the ball beyond Irureta.

Yet Rodrygo was given his marching orders moments later, after he decided to celebrate in the goalkeeper’s face.

The referee spotted the youngster’s actions and brandished a second yellow card which will prevent him from playing in the upcoming Clasico.

Article 56.3 of the Disciplinary Code explains why Zinedine Zidane will not be able to call on the teenager at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

“In the case of players that feature for other sides of the main team or in a team of a sponsoring club, a suspended player may not play in any of these teams or clubs, until the suspension is served in the category in which the infraction was committed,” the law states.
