Copa del Rey: Why Vinicius & De Jong Should Have Been Sent off In The First-half

Yesterday's Copa del Rey semi-final first leg between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona at Camp Nou witnessed some actions which many feel were not rightly judged by the Referee.

Barcelona was dominated throughout the game yesterday by Real Madrid but was lucky to secure the win. Ronald Aruajo's own goal which was facilitated by Kessie's shot made the difference at Santiago Bernabeu last night.

Xavi admitted in the post-match conference that they lost control to Real Madrid but he is happy that they were able to win the game in the end. Ancelotti on the other hand has said they will try to improve on their performance in the second leg at Barcelona's home.

However, Vinicius and De Jong were involved in a bust-up yesterday which was similar to that of Ferran Torres and Stefan Savic in January. Torres and Savic were sent off by the Referee and the same Referee spared Vinicius and de Jong yesterday as he only gave the Real Madrid winger a yellow card.

The argument is that both players are guilty of the Incident as de Jong was also seen pulling Vinicius Jersey during the battle. This shows that both players should have been dismissed since the Referee did the same thing to Torres and Savic a few months ago.

Nevertheless, the deed has been done and the Referee is expected to learn from his mistake and improve in his next game.

What are your thoughts on the Incident, Do you agree that Vinicius and de Jong should also have been sent off last night?
