Nelson Semedo Sent Sergio Ramos Back To The Sevilla Youth Team In Last Night's El Clasico
Nelson Semedo sent Sergio Ramos back to the time he had long locks and looked like Ugly Betty in last night's 1-1 draw in El Clasico.
Late in the second half of the Copa Del Rey semi-final first leg at the Nou Camp, Semedo made his way to the byline on the right-hand side.
Ramos sensed the danger and desperately tried to block make a block. But the Portuguese right-back was clever enough to anticipate Ramos' challenge and promptly faked a cross.
His swift faint utterly destroyed Ramos, who went sliding all the way off the pitch in scenes reminiscent to Sol Campbell's infamous never-ending slide tackle at Wembley against Croatia.
Ramos ended up near the advertising pitch and got fully merked by Semedo, though Lionel Messi couldn't find the right angle to shoot past Keylor Navas when fed in the area by the former Benfica defender.
Still, a lot of people enjoyed Real Madrid's captain being sent for a hot dog, nachos and coca cola.
Legend has it Ramos is still sliding as we speak.
The 32-year old was booked 10 minutes into the El Clasico and lucky to avoid a second yellow for a challenge on Arthur but ended up seeing out the game.
Ramos has now collected 200 yellow cards and 24 red cards in his career thus far. He is he most carded player in the history of La Liga as well as the most carded player in the Champions League.
In addition, he is the most carded player for his country....and the most carded player in El Clásico history.
Miraculously, he did not pick up a single red card in 2018 - which was only the third time in his 16-year career that he has gone a whole year without being giving his marching orders.
