VAR drama: Spanish player sent off twice in same game

Fuenlabrada midfielder Cristobal Marquez was sent off twice in his side's 1-0 defeat to Girona in the Spanish second division on Sunday, after initially being saved by VAR.

Cristobal, 35, was shown a straight red card on 70 minutes after a high tackle on an opponent and headed down the tunnel to the dressing room.

After reviewing the pitchside monitor, the referee reduced his decision to a yellow card and recalled the Spaniard.

As Cristobal ran back onto the pitch, he got into a verbal altercation with an opposing player, receiving a second yellow card and subsequent dismissal, seeing him given his marching orders for the second time in the game.
