Servette beat Young Boys 2-1 in a Swiss Super League match last weekend that ended on unfriendly terms. After Servette scored a a go-ahead goal in the 90th minute, Young Boys were eager to try and equalize as they hope to retain their Europa League spot.
While chasing down a ball that had gone out near Servette's bench, Young Boys' Alexander Gonzalez gave Servette manager Joao Alves a light shove as he tried to take the most direct route to the ball as possible. Alves, of course, didn't appreciate this, so a scuffle ensued and one of his coaches ended up tripping Gonzalez once he grabbed the ball.
In the end, Alves was sent to the stands and Servette held on for the win.
This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
