Real Madrid’s faint hopes of retaining their La Liga title receded further when they had Kaka sent off and were held to a 0-0 draw at struggling Osasuna on Saturday.
In a poor-quality and bad-tempered clash at Osasuna’s Reyno de Navarra stadium, the main incident came in the 76th minute when Kaka was shown a second yellow card for preventing Osasuna taking a quick free kick.
The little-used Brazilian playmaker had been on the pitch for a little over a quarter of an hour and had been booked moments after coming off the bench for jumping with a flailing arm.
It was the 2007 World Player of the Year’s first sending off since he joined Real from AC Milan in 2009 and his first red card since he was dismissed playing for Brazil against Ivory Coast at the 2010 World Cup.
