Cristiano Ronaldo Punches Atlético Madrid’s Diego Godín: Did He Mean To Do It?

Anything can happen in a soccer game, that’s for sure. In the middle of the Spanish Super Cup game between Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid on Aug. 22, Portuguese soccer player Cristiano threw his arm towards the face of opposing defender Diego of Atlético Madrid.

In the video, both teams clash at the goal line and Cristiano’s arm clocks out Diego! The throw was so severe that Diego hit the ground almost instantly and cradled his face in his hands. 

The punch earned Cristiano a yellow card in the second half, according to UK’s Daily Mirror

Atlético Madrid went on to beat their rival team 2-1 on aggregate.

Cristiano is fresh off his participation in the 2014 World Cup. Despite Portugal’s loss to Germany, Cristiano was one of the most talked about players in the tournament. The hunky athlete recently loss to LeBron James, 29, for the top spot in Sports Illustrated’s 50 Fittest Athletes edition.

While it’s unclear if Cristiano deliberately threw the punch at Diego, the Uruguayan soccer player definitely got hit hard.

HollywoodLifers, do you really think Cristiano punched Diego in the face? Was Cristiano just too into the game to see where his arms were flying? Let us know!

It is clear the defender was holding christiano’s neck and he was trying to free himself from a clear foul
It should have been a penalty to start with.

Of course it should have been a penalty, but Ronaldo is pretty damn good at falling for nothing, seems he should stick to what he knows best, instead of going all nutcase on him. Suarez gets 4 months for biting (fine), then you should get some sort of attention for PUNCHING (2 times) after another player. It is not boxing.

Ye, you get a penalty if you play your cards right. Defending himself like he would in a streetfight, sure.

You should get your informations better before accusing someone of doing something (so serious) that they didn’t. That match was yesterday and Cristiano didn’t even play, since he has a severe injury (the same injury that almost took him away from World Cup in Brazil).

yes he played but it looked like Godin had both his arms around CR neck and CR was trying to get away from him. If any card was shown it should have been Godin and a penalty to CR

lol. Everybody grabs people during a corner kick. Look at half the other players. Punching somebody in the face even in retaliation is a red card. Ronaldo should of been sent off, and if Godin was grabbing only a foul should of been called on him no card.
