Real Madrid suffer 5 red cards and 2 dropped points

What a disaster for all concerned with Real Madrid at El Madrigal stadium last night. Rui Faria, the trainer, was sent from the bench for dissent after 49 minutes. Ramos was expelled for a second yellow as was Jose Mourinho. Ozil was then expelled for disrespect, with Pepe being shown a red card for his outburst in the tunnel after the game.

Ther first half was unspectacular, Lass being the most effective player at the deepest point of a midfield diamond. This formation had to be changed after Lass received a yellow card. Marcos Senna had a good first half for Villareal, intelligent, strong in defense and good use of the ball.

Ronalso put Madrid into the lead in the 61st minute after a sublime through ball from Ozil. Madrid failed to push on and were, perhaps, content to keep what they had.

All hell broke loose in the last ten minutes. Ramos picked up a second yellow after 82 minutes, which led to the second yellow for Mourinho for dissent and Ozil was given a straight red for sarcstically clapping the referee.

Marco Senna then scored directly from the free kick, to which Casillas was a little slow to react to. Villareal were also denied a penalty after Arbeloa tugged Nilmar`s shirt in the area. If the rferee had seen it there may have been another red card.

The real Madrid players were fuming at the final whistle. Christiano was heard to say “they robbed us, they robbed us, just robbed us,” and Pepe is reported to have told Paradas Romero to ” go and mug someone you son of a bitch,” for which he was also expelled.

Neither coaching staff or players chose to comment publically because they could not trust their tempers.
