Sergio Ramos Denies Rodrygo The Chance Of A 10 Minute Hat-Trick By Taking Penalty
Sergio Ramos added to his 'most hated man in football' title by stopping teammate Rodrygo from claiming a 10 minute hat-trick in the Champions League by continuing his duty as Real Madrid penalty taker.
Fans love to hate the Real captain and he was up to his usual sh*thousery on Wednesday night, this time against his own teammate.
Young Brazilian forward Rodrygo opened the scoring for Zinedine Zidane's side, against Galatasaray on Wednesday in the Champions League, after just four minutes and the 18-year-old doubled the lead just three minutes later.
Steven N'zonzi gave away a 14th minute penalty when he fouled Toni Kroos and Rodrygo would have had the chance for a hat-trick but Ramos decided to keep penalty duties and duly sent a Panenka into the net for 3-0.

Real Madrid win a penalty.
18-year-old Rodrygo could take it to to complete his first hat-trick for the club.
Or Sergio Ramos could insist on it.
And panenka it.

Had Ramos given Rodrygo the ball for the penalty, and it been scored, kid would have had quickest hat-trick in UCL history. Previous was Marco Simeone [24 mins] for Milan v Rosenberg in 1996 - via @2010MisterChip

Rodrygo scores two goals in the first 7 minutes for Real Madrid v Galatasaray.
In the 14th minute, Real get a penalty. A chance for Rodrygo to complete a remarkable hat-trick.
Sergio Ramos scores it instead.
What an utterly magnificent bastard he is. pic.twitter.com/w524mTAIE5

Had to be Rodrygo to take it for the hat-trick, but Ramos is having none of that.

It would have been incredible record for Rodrygo to complete had his captain let him take the spot kick but instead the penalty went to Ramos.
Of course the defender is the team's chief penalty taker and at 2-0 the game was arguably not over, with the Spaniards having previously come from two down to draw 2-2 with Club Brugge on Matchday Two, but it seems kind of harsh of the 33-year-old not to let his young teammate take the pen.
Benzema then made it 4-0 before half-time and Rodrygo picked up an assist to go with his brace.
The former Santos forward did finish off his hat-trick when he scored his third goal in injury time as the 13 time European champions went on to win 6-0.
Should Ramos have stood aside?
