Club Brugge scored a 92nd equaliser but then had two men – including goalscorer Krépin Diatta – sent off for their celebrations in an extraordinary conclusion to their Champions League Group A match against Galatasaray.
Diatta had cut in from the wing to smash home from distance, but then wheeled away, removing his shirt. This attracted a second yellow card from Slovakian referee Ivan Kruzliak, who had booked him earlier in the second half.
He was immediately joined in departing the pitch by Brugge defender Clinton Mata, whose contribution to the celebrations was a flying scissor-kick on a corner flag, which snapped it clean in two. He too received a second yellow card.
Adem Büyük had opened the scoring for Galatasaray in the 11th minute with a neat flick and volley after Ömer Bayram’s cross. It was the Turkish side’s first goal in their five group games, and their only other point in the group came from a goalless draw in the reverse fixture back in mid-September.
The result confirmed Real Madrid’s qualification for the knockout stages, as Club Brugge needed victory to keep their slim hopes alive. Real hosted group leaders Paris Saint-Germain later on Tuesday.
