VIDEO: Former Chelsea man sees red after horrendous tackle on Lionel Messi


Barcelona’s game with Atletico Madrid was always going to be a feisty affair.

Although the rivalry between Barca and Atleti is not quite at El Clasico levels, the two teams are both in contention to win La Liga this season.

In the first half, Atleti took the lead at the Nou Camp through Koke, before Lionel Messi equalised.

Luis Suarez then put Barca ahead and, just before the break, Messi was on the receiving end of a terrible tackle from Filipe Luis.

The former Chelsea defender caught the Argentine’s knee with his studs, and the Barcelona man was lucky not to be injured more severely
