...... A day to forget for goalkeeper Ricardo.

When Ricardo was sent-off 90th minute, central defender Melli (#2) had to put on the pink jersey and defend the penalty! Coach Chaparro had already made the 3 substitutions! 1) Sergio Garcia out, Edu in- 2) Mark Gonzalez out, Ondonkor in 3) Emana out, Capi in

Poor Casto (back-up goalkeeper)-- must feel frustrating being on the bench but not being able to be put on because the 3 changes were already done.

Unfortunately in this game Ricardo gets more blame, unlike the others ones. Marca summarized it:
"In the last 15 minutes, 4 goals were scored. Barkero converted a penalty. Capi tied. Oliveira increased the lead with a non-existent penalty, and Aranda tied again converting a penalty, error committed by Ricardo. in the end, everything is still the same."

Alfinaldelapalmera was more direct: "3-3, it caught up but Ricardo gifted a draw to Numancia." (3-3 Remonto, pero Ricardo le regalo el empate a Numancia)
Midfielder Barkero who converted the penalty in the 90th minute, is interviewed on the UEFA website because he's going through a good phase this season. he has already scored 10 goals this season.

01:17 (Betis 1-2 Numancia) 75th minute Penalty converted by Numancia's Barkero

Foul leading to penalty: Ricardo covers his right post, looks like no communication between defender Arzu and Ricardo. Arzu gets to the legs of the Numancia player in the area. The ball bounces off Ricardo. Penalty because of Nelson's foul, not Ricardo.

Ricardo guessed wrong. throws himself to his left but Barkero shot through the middle.

02:27 (Betis 3-3 Numancia) goalkeeper Ricardo's foul that led to his second yellow card and penalty.
He leaves the net, jumps with his knees raised, kicks the Numancia player on the back while in the air.

Ricardo is no longer in goal for the penalty. Got booked for the second time so received the red card and was sent-off. Central defender Melli put on the pink goalkeeper jersey over his Betis #2 jersey for the penalty. He guessed right, threw himself to the left but the shot was too strong.
