In which, during the Segunda Division tie between the two sides on Monday evening, Xerez ‘keeper Toni Doblas reduces Girona striker Ion Velez’s knee to a mushy paste with a truly horrific full-tilt tackle.

Warning for the squeamish: I’m no doctor, but I’m pretty sure you can see Velez’s knee dislocate fairly graphically during the second replay…

Amazingly, the referee didn’t see fit to administer Doblas with a yellow card, in fact not so much as a free-kick was awarded for his greivous knee-reducing assault – not the faintest peep of a dicky bird’s sausage.

Meanwhile, Velez is now expected to miss at least the next year of his career with acute knee ligament damage.
