UEFA Champions League

3 Football Players Who Have Received Cards This Season

Yellow and red cards are used as a means to discipline players for misconduct during the game. A yellow card is used to caution players, while a red card results in the player's dismissal from the field of play. Thus, yellow cards are used to punish milder forms of misconduct than red cards.

1. Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi's main task at Paris Saint-Germain will be to help the team win the UEFA Champions League.

Messi struggled to make a serious impact on his full debut against Club Brugge and it was instead Ander Herrera who netted the opener. Messi was later shown a yellow card in the second half.

2. Joao Felix

Atletico slumped to a third successive home draw across all competitions for the first time since October 2019, as Athletic frustrated them in a 0-0 stalemate.

Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix was sent off as the Laliga champions were held 0-0 draw at home to Atletico Bilbao on september 18, 2021.

3. Reece James

Referee Anthony Taylor sent James off for a goal-line handball which led to Mohamed Salah levelling from the spot. Liverpool and Chelsea were forced to settle for a share of the points at Anfield in a 1-1 draw where Reece James saw red in contentious fashion.
