21. La Roja

Date: 8/17/2011
Game: Barcelona vs. Real Madrid
Location: Camp Nou (Barcelona)

The greatest rivalry in European club soccer, bar none. This recent installment of Barca vs. Real was the Spanish Super Cup of the summer of 2011. With only a few moments remaining, and Madrid almost assured of defeat, defender Marcelo decides to spice things up a bit with a crunching scissor tackle on Cesc Fabregas. The red card comes out, but it's hardly the end. Both squads, who are packed with players who hate each other on the club level yet play together for Spain, entangle on the touch line for a few "friendly" words. The red card is flying all over the place at this point, and Madrid coach Mourinho gets in on the action with a "cheeky" play of his own against now Barca coach, Tito Vilanova. Terrible indeed.
