Two Club Brugge Players Sent Off For Celebrating Their Goal In The Champions League
Two Club Brugge players were sent off for celebrating their late equaliser against Galatasaray in the Champions League.
The Belgium outfit left it late to secure a point in Istanbul as Krépin Diatta scored a stunning strike deep into stoppage time to make it 1-1.
But the Senegalese midfielder received his marching orders after removing his shirt and Clinton Mata was also shown a red card for picking up his second caution for destroying the corner flag.
Diatta picked up a second caution shortly after returning to the center circle with the match referee also branding a red card to Mata for kicking out at the corner flag.

Club Brugge can't qualify for the next round of the Champions League, but they're battling with Galatasaray to finish in third place which would secure Europa League football in the new year.
