Douglas Costa may well have just taken the shine off Cristiano Ronaldo’s first goals for Juventus after some truly disgusting antics got him sent off.
In a crazy end to the game, the Bayern winger produced a poor tackle mere seconds before Sassuolo pulled one back in stoppage time at the Allianz Stadium.
But then the Brazilian elbowed and raised his head to Federico Di Francesco right in front of the referee, before spitting in the 24-year old’s mouth in a truly vile act.
VAR reviewed the incident and the referee correctly gave him his marching orders – though his conduct was probably worthy of three red cards.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter erupted with reaction to the Costa’s horrible foul play:
Surely a big ban will be on the way for the former Shakhtar Donetsk man…
