Dani Alves wrestles with opponent in Cup final

Published 2 Comments

Barcelona won a record 11th Spanish Cup final last night, having beat Atletico Madrid on away goals. The Catalonian side won on away goals, with the first leg ending 1-1, and yesterday's game 0-0.

But one of the main talking points of the game were the antics of defenders Dani Alves and Filipe Luis.

Having clashed in the past, many expected the duo to lock horns again last night, and viewers were not disappointed. Whilst competing for a stray ball, Luis appeared to wrestle Alves to the ground, something that the Barcelona man didn't take kindly to.

Luis was eventually sent off and control restored!
