Sergio Ramos Produced The Most Obvious Handball You'll Ever See During Valencia 4-1 Real Madrid
Sergio Ramos summed up Real Madrid's performance against Valencia by giving away a penalty with the most blatant handball ever.
'Los Blancos' slumped to their heaviest La Liga defeat in over two years with a 4-1 loss on Sunday evening.
Carlos Soler scored a hat-trick of penalties and one of them was gifted to him by Ramos in the most bizarre way.
While tussling with Yunus Musah, the ball bounced up and Madrid captain Ramos smacked it away with a left hook.
Ni Gil Manzano ni el asistente de banda lo pitaron... Se revisó a petición del VAR...

Linesman Gil Manzano somehow missed the incident and was saved by VAR's intervention, who awarded a penalty.
Soler stepped up to complete his hat-trick and make the scores 4-1.

Madrid had actually taken the lead through Karim Benzema in the first half but crumbled defensively.
Ramos, Marcelo and Lucas Vasquez would go on to give away penalties while Raphael Varane scored an own goal.
Manager Zinedine Zidane spoke following the game and took responsibility for the defeat.
"We started the first half-hour well," the Frenchman told Daily Mail.
"After the goal we fell apart and changed the dynamics. Everything happened to us; three penalties, an own goal. It is difficult to understand.
"After their first goal we dropped our level a bit and stopped doing everything we had been doing well. We did everything wrong, it's difficult to try and understand our performance.
"There's no excuse for how we defended today. After the first goal our heads dropped and our problems kept building. Right now we are not defending as well as we used to.
