Did Cristiano Ronaldo deliberately punch Diego Godin last night?

August 23rd, 2014

In the final minute of Atletico Madrid’s 1-0 victory Friday night over Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to punch Atletico defender Diego Godin in the head on a corner kick. The two got tangled up in the box as Real were desperately searching for an equalizer, and Ronaldo seemed to smack Godin to the ground out of frustration.

When you see it again in slow motion (below), it certainly looks like Ronaldo landed not one, but two hay-makers on Godin’s dome, and though we can’t say for sure, the second one seems somewhat intentional. Should La Liga share our view, anything other than a multiple-match suspension would be a surprise.

Also, we see you Sergio Ramos. Attempting a “Hand of God” goal, there? Nothing gets past the FOX Soccer Blog!
