Makkelie deprives Sevilla defender Marcos Acuña of the Europa League final for a bizarre reason

A remarkable moment in extra time of the Europa League match between Sevilla and Juventus. Referee Danny Makkelie awarded a striking card to Marcos Acuña, who therefore has to miss the final against AS Roma.

The moment came in the 115th minute, when the final score (2-1 win for Sevilla) had already been reached. Acuña took a throw-in and wanted to throw the ball back. There was Nemanja Gudelj, who called for Acuña to throw forward. A fierce discussion ensued and in the eyes of Makkelie Acuña had lost too much time on the throw-in. As a result, he received a second yellow card and therefore a red. Normally, the Argentinian is therefore suspended for the final.

After the red card, Acuña was furious with Gudelj in particular. His absence may mean good news for Karim Rekik, who sees the chance of a starting place in the final increase. On Wednesday, May 31, Seville and Roma will meet in Budapest.
