Argentinian side Huracon defeated Venezuela's Caracas FC in the Copa Libertadores last night but the game will be best remembered for the red card to Miguel Mea Vitali.

The Venezuelan international was sent off on the stroke of half-time for an attempted tackle on Huracon's Mauro Bogado. The loss of Mea Vitali turned out to be the turning point of the game as Huracon went on to win 1-0.

Both sides meet in the second leg of their tie next Tuesday. It's safe to say the Mea Vitali will not be involved when the teams face off again.
