Keylor Navas should have been sent off

Keylor Navas should have been sent off

Our resident referee Iturralde González analyses the controversial talking points from Celta Vigo's 2-2 draw with Real Madrid.

Orange for Casemiro

With the exception of the yellow card for Casemiro in the 44th minute, which could easily have been a red, and nobody would have said anything, referee Jaime Latre was mostly on top of the major incidents in the match.

Penalty for Celta

No doubt about it. The Real Madrid keeper bundles Aspas over with both body and legs. And it's always a yellow (as it was here) unless the foul itself is a red card. The referee was spot on here.

Keylor off his line

The goalkeeper can only move from side to side during the penalty. He can't come off his line. And Keylor did so. Not by a small amount. No. By a full two metres. And under the new rules he should have been booked for it, which would have meant a sending off.

Navas was miles off his line when he stopped the penalty

In this types of situations the referees need to tougher and apply the rules. Both with keepers who go wandering off their line, as with players who stray into the box before the spot-kick is taken.
