WATCH: Valencia Defender Gabriel Paulista Kick Real Madrid’s Vini Jr.

Football fans all over the world watched in shock and horror on Thursday night as Valencia defender Gabriel Paulista viciously kicked Vini Jr in a moment of madness.

For long periods the La Liga champions kept possession of the football – all the while frustrating their opponents with intricate passes and close dribbling.

The crumbling turf at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium didn’t make things any easier. Some reports said the turf was going to be replaced after the match.

For lashing out after being dribbled by Vini J, Paulista was shown a Red Card in the 71st minute.

Home side Real Madrid beat Valencia 2-0 with goals from Marco Asensio 52′ and Vini Jr. 54′.
