It was only a matter of time before it happened and now it finally has: Pepe has kicked a teammate in the chest. And in a bit of cosmic perfection, that teammate was Sergio Ramos.
The two Real Madrid defenders known for their recklessness came together in a Nigel De Jong-esque fashion as both felt the best way to handle a high ball was with a karate kick. Though Ramos' connected with the ball, Pepe's connected with Ramos' midsection, leaving the Spaniard in a fair bit of a pain. He was able to continue though, and Real Madrid took a 2-0 lead into halftime thanks in part to a wonder volley from James Rodriguez.
This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
