Before Cristiano Ronaldo scored with his seeing-eye backheel against Ray Vallecano, Sergio Ramos was lucky not to get sent off even before the half hour mark. He picked up a yellow card in just the third minute, putting him on dangerous ground from the start. And about 15 minutes after that, he casually employed a defensive technique that is usually frowned upon (keyword: usually) by elbowing Diego Costa in the face.
Yet, instead of getting booked a second time, Sergio Ramos went unpunished for this, while Diego Costa was shown a yellow of his own for arguing that fact. And somewhere, Batman wept.
