Watch Franck Ribery as he elbows Borussia Dortmund’s Felix Passlack in German Super Cup!
Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich locked their horns for the first trophy of the season, German Super Cup. A tense match that was won by Bayern, thanks to Muller and Vidal goals!
The match would probably ended a lot differently, if a referee would do his job and sent Ribery off the pitch for a crazy elbow.
You shoot the ball away in frustration: yellow card.
You hit out against somebody: yellow card (when your name is Franck Ribery). #BVBFCB

When the teams were still locked in a goalless draw, Passlack was covering Ribery, by pulling back the French wizard. It was a foul, but Ribery overreacted and landed a big elbow against Passlack’s head. Insane elbow for which Ribery received only a yellow card.
Franck Ribery should have been sent off, and Borussia would have probably won the first trophy of the season.
As it stands, Ancelotti made a good start to his Bayern career, while the biggest German club won another trophy!
