Chile playing with 10 players since the 28th minute. Referee giving a second yellow card to Marcelo Díaz. Bad news and players protesting. Arguably, the foul on Argentina forward Lionel Messi was not a foul. Yet, nothing to do despite the protests and Díaz leaving the pitch really upset.
The match now even with 10 players each. In the 43rd minute, Referee giving a direct red card to Argentina Marcelo Rojo after a foul on Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal.
Referee giving a yellow card in the 37th minute to Argentina midfielder Javier Mascherano and Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal. Stats: Mascherano has played in 5 Finals game with Argentina and getting a yellow card in each one.
Things seeming to get out of control. Referee giving a yellow card to Argentina forward Lionel Messi for a diving in the 40th minute.
