Luis Suarez escapes red card after this kick on Atletico defender goes unnoticed

Lucky, lucky boy.

An eventful first half at the Nou Camp, but a frustrating one for the home side.

Fernando Torres gave Atletico Madrid a lead in the Champions League quarter final first leg, only to be sent off seven minutes later.

Despite the numerical advantage, Barca trailed at half-time, and were fortunate not to have Luis Suarez sent off.

The former Liverpool man should have been dismissed for this kick on Juanfran.

The referee and his assistants failed to spot the incident and, predictably, the Uruguayan was on hand to score a couple of second half goals.
