It was a frustrating night for Neymar and Barcelona as they struggled at home to find a goal against Malaga, succumbing to a 1-0 defeat at Camp Nou.

And, rightly so, the frustration was evident by their antics, be it Jordi Alba kicking a Malaga player twice or Neymar pulling off a horrible tackle. Cutting in from the left, the Brazil captain in an attempt to keep the ball to his feet, went for a very late and rough challenge in the 87th minute.

He was given a yellow, but many argued that the tackle called for a sending off and that the forward should be considering himself lucky to not have been sent off at that moment.
