Alexander Nubel made one of the worst red card challenges you will see for a while. The Schalke keeper dubbed the next Manuel Neuer made a terrible challenge on Eintracht Frankfurt's Mijat Gacinovic was he was running to the ball on the edge of the area.

The following happened: Gacinovic was running onto a pass and Nubel came to clear. The Schalke goalie did not have faith in his teammates and he ran out to try and clear before the Serbian could get there

Nubel was worried Gacinovic would get there first, but he did not win the race. The Frankfurt man touch the ball and the keeper wiped out the Serbian. It brought back memories of Harald Schumacher's shocking challenge on Patrick Battison in the 1982 World Cup.

On that occasion, the German keeper caught the France player with his hip and knocked him out. Inexplicably, not even a foul was given.

In the Schalke v Eintracht Frankfurt match, the goalkeeper was punished for his foul. Nubel was given a straight red card for his shocking challenge which saw his boot go straight into Gacinovic's chest. The Frankfurt player was also bleeding from the mouth after the incident.
