Hermoso, a penalty game for his expulsion in Balaídos

The center-back will not be able to be against Elche after seeing the direct red against Celta. The minutes included that he grabbed a rival by the neck. Two games of punishment for Profe Ortega.


Atlético already knows the sanction imposed by the Competition Committee on Mario Hermoso: one match. For his part, Prof. Ortega, expelled in the last few moments, has been punished for two encounters. In the case of the central defender, it is the minimum penalty after seeing a direct red card in the league debut against Celta after a confrontation with Hugo Mallo, who had just been sent off for a double yellow.

The celestial captain approached to recriminate Luis Suárez, who was lying on the ground due to a kick from the Galician and Hermoso got in the way. The controversial report of Munuera Montero stated that the athletic defender was “sent off for grabbing an opponent by the neck with both hands continuously without the ball being in play”, an action that cannot be seen in the images. If it looks like Iago Aspas puts his finger in the eye of Hermoso, something that was not alerted neither from the VAR nor did he collect the referee's act and about what the forward himself apologized on social networks.Finally, despite the fact that a greater sanction could be expected due to the wording of the referee, for which Atlético had already presented allegations, understanding that the aforementioned by Munuera Montero did not occur and was trying to have the red one withdrawn, the punishment imposed on Hermoso is of a game when applying article 122 of the disciplinary code, framing the action of "conduct contrary to good sports order." Of course, Competition does not agree with the rojiblanco club stating that with the video evidence a manifest referee's material error cannot be guaranteed. Same case as in the Giménez cardboard badly written in the first annex, but indicated in a second letter that was shown for protesting, so the yellow has not been withdrawn from the Uruguayan despite the red-and-white allegations.

If nothing changes, Simeone will have to face his first difficulty in the center of the rear, since Felipe returned to the group today, but he will still gradually join the team, so Cholo only has Savic and Giménez available for the league premiere at the Wanda Metropolitano when the Argentine coach usually resorts to three starting centers. Nehuén Pérez has not yet been registered in LaLiga and remains on the lookout.

The rest of the sanctioned of the first day

The Valencian player Guillamón made an untimely entry at the beginning of the game against Getafe in Mestalla that caused the first expulsion of the season. Bordalás will not be able to count on the footballer on his next trip to Granada.

In the same game, Getafe player Erick Cabaco was reprimanded twice and also saw the red card, but the Committee decided "to leave the second warning without disciplinary effects, and consequent expulsion for double warning" and to acknowledge that "there is an error clear and manifest in the arbitration certificate ", so he will be able to play against Sevilla.

In the same way, Luca Zidane, Rayo Vallecano goalkeeper, received the red card directly after committing a penalty at Sánchez Pizjuán, so he may be against Real Sociedad.
