Conceding four goals in a humiliating loss is never pleasant, especially playing away from home.
Chilean side Universidad Catolica thumped Audax Italiano 4-1 on Saturday in a forgettable outing for the visitors, who now sit third-bottom on the league table.
But if coming away from the Estadio San Carlos de Apoquindo with nothing to show for it did not hurt enough, one Audax Italiano player made sure the day would end in disgrace.

Any away team in world football is unlikely to go unpunished when they are being completely outplayed by the hosts.
Such a situation can be extremely frustrating for the visiting players – but most professional footballers are capable of keeping their emotions under control.
For Audax Italiano striker Sebastian Pol, however, that certainly was not the case this weekend.
According to Chilean media outlet La Tercara, as per 101GreatGoals, the Argentine has been arrested by police for attacking an opposition fan in the crowd.
Pol may have been provoked by the supporter, who reportedly spat at the visitors bench in the lead-up to the altercation.
Whether that part of the incident is accurate or not, the 28-year-old completely lost it and jumped onto the roof of the visitors dugout, from where he kicked out at the fan.
Once he had delivered a nasty kick to the face, he saw fit to turn around and return to the safety of pitchside area.
While Pol was not pulled up for actions immediately, he is thought to have since been taken to a police station for questioning.
Watch how the madness unfolded in the video below.
