Claudio Bravo forgets what team he plays for, gets sent off vs. Barcelona

Oh boy...

Barcelona are a goal up and now also a man up after their former goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo, was sent off in a bizarre incident. A long ball over the top targeting Luis Suarez was too long and Bravo came to clear it. Instead of booting it, he passed it right to his former teammate Suarez and then attempted to save the ensuing chip shot.

Bravo got the save, but it was way outside of the box and he was issued a red card. Manchester City must now play the rest of this Champions League group stage match with 10-men. Willy Caballero comes in to replace the Chilean.

It’s looking very good for Barcelona to come out of this match with the full three points. With City already at a score disadvantage and without their top striker Sergio Aguero, they must now find a way to equalize against all the odds.
