Inter Milan midfielder Arturo Vidal was shown a red card for squaring up to Premier League referee Anthony Taylor in his side’s Champions League clash against Real Madrid.

The Chilean was shown two quick-fire yellow cards after challenging Taylor’s refusal to give a penalty for a challenge on Vidal moments earlier in the box from Raphael Varane.

Taylor dismissed calls for a spot kick and gave Vidal a yellow for his fiery complaints.

However, the former Juventus man was riled further by Taylor’s decision to give him a yellow card and promptly squared up to the Premier League referree.

Taylor was unwilling to look past Vidal’s furious reaciton and promptly gave him another yellow, leaving Inter to defend with ten men for an hour.

Antonio Conte’s side were already a goal down after Eden Hazard put his side ahead from the penalty spot.

The Italian made a number of tactical tweaks and their performance improved but Rodrygo scored a fine goal on the counter on the hour-mark to double his side’s advantage.

Inter’s defeat leaves Conte’s side on two points with two matches remaining and they must win both to stand any chance of progressing to the last-16.

More likely is a third place finish, with Shakhtar Donetsk currently two points above them.
