Sergio Busquets was the main protagonist in the most tense moments during El Clasico in Las Vegas. The Blaugrana captain too the match to heart and didn’t hesitate to go all out to the divided challenges against Real Madrid players, many of which were borderline outside the rulebook. It was too much for a friendly game, according to Real Madrid player who were on the pitch.
During the first incident, he threw himself to the ground with full force in order to stop Vinicius from behind but he didn’t reach the Brazilian. After that, Jordi Alba’s foul on Vini when he was moving towards Ter Stegen’s goal was the fuse that lit the fire. The brawl’s origin was Rodrygo getting on Busquets’ face, he pinched him in the back and that angered the Culer player. Sergio got on Rodrygo’s face first and then on Vinicius’ while Rudiger and Araujo were part of the most intense part of the entire brawl.
After the second half, Busquets was at it again with a harsh challenge on Luka Modric during a divided ball. Again, the Real Madrid players demended the veteran for explanations due to a stomp on the Croatian‘s foot. Modric was fortunately unharmed after that. This challenge was the one that cost him the yellow card and players like Marco Asensio getting on his face.
