But it wasn’t the first time Navarro saw red after an encounter with Ronaldo. Two seasons ago, Navarro launched upward into Ronaldo’s face, leaving the Real Madrid star with plenty of blood. In fact, don’t watch the video if you aren’t comfortable with the red stuff.

Ronaldo also recorded an assist on Madrid’s second goal today, because he’s pretty good at soccer.
