TRABZONSPOR ace Maxi Gomez was sent off after just 11 minutes for kicking Monaco’s Mohamed Camara in the face.
The shocking incident took place at the Stade Louis II where the Ligue 1 giants hosted the Turkish champions in the Europa League.
Camara and Gomez came together early in the match and the Monaco ace pushed his opponent to the ground.
But as striker Gomez fell he appeared to shockingly kick the hosts’ midfielder in the face with his right foot.
The unbelievable incident went for a VAR check as the referee wasn’t close during the collision.
And that is when Gomez was caught and the referee sent him off with a straight red card.
That cost Trabzonspor as Wissam Ben Yedder opened the scoring for Monaco just three minutes later.
Ben Yedder doubled the hosts’ lead from the penalty spot in first half injury time.
And Axel Disasi sealed Philippe Clement’s side’s victory in the 55th minute.
Trabzonspor star Tasos Bakasetas got his team on the scoreboard with a strike after 72 minutes.
