Fans Think Kevin De Bruyne Should Have Been Sent Off For Shocking Challenge On Idrissa Gueye

Fans think Kevin De Bruyne should have been sent off vs Paris Saint-Germain after producing a poor tackle on Idrissa Gueye.

Former Everton midfielder Gueye, who was shown a red card against City in last season's Champions League semi-final first leg at the Parc des Princes, opened the scoring with an emphatic finish just eight minutes in.

It was Gueye's first goal in Europe's premier club competition.

But at the end of the first half, the Senegal international was in the wars after De Bruyne caught him badly on his leg.

The Belgian did initially get a toe to the ball but replays showed his follow through was incredibly dangerous and left Gueye writing around in agony.

Surprisingly, despite a considerable stoppage and VAR in use, De Bruyne escaped with a yellow card. Many felt it was the wrong call and referenced the double standards in UEFA officiating.

A couple of weeks back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off for Manchester United against Young Boys for a similar challenge in the 2-1 defeat.

Gueye, quite possibly the best player on the pitch in the opening 45 minutes, was down for a fair amount of time and looked like he might not be able to continue, with Gini Wijnaldum warming up.

However, he was able to shake off the knock after receiving treatment.
