Real Madrid’s frustration with officials has been evident this season and will have increased after
Marcelo’s red card against Levante ensured they picked up their third since the domestic season started.
The first was Cristiano Ronaldo’s dismissal in the Supercopa de Espana against Barcelona for two yellows, firstly for taking off his jersey after scoring before picking up another for a alleged simulation.
In Real’s first LaLiga game of the season, captain Sergio Ramos was sent off against Deportivo for two separate incidents.
On Saturday, in Los Blancos’ 1-1 draw against Levante at home, Marcelo was instantly shown the line following a tangle on the ground with Jefferson Lerma.
That took their red card count for the season to three already, a surprising statistic considering they had just two players sent off throughout the entirety of last season.
