Alessio Romagnoli saw red in MilanSassuolo, contrary to Giacomo Raspadori who could have been sent off for a foul on Ismael Bennacer.

The Rossoneri collected their second defeat in a row by losing 3-1 against Sassuolo at San Siro.

Alessio Romagnoli gave his side the lead in the first half, but Gianluca Scamacca levelled the score after a few minutes and caused Simon Kjaer’s own goal before the break.

Domenico Berardi made it three for Sassuolo in the second half before Romagnoli was given his marching order for a foul on Gregoire Defrel on the edge of the Rossoneri’s box.

The Italian defender denied Sassuolo an obvious goal-scoring opportunity and his last-man foul outside the box could only be punished with a straight red card.

Raspadori could have seen red too in the first half for a foul on Bennacer, but referee Gianluca Manganiello only showed a yellow card and VAR didn’t intervene.

Raspadori’s tackle could have been considered a ‘serious foul play’ but when the match official showed him a yellow card, VAR didn’t intervene, not considering the referee’s decision a clear and obvious mistake.

Raspadori, in fact, tried to pull out, meaning the foul was not intentional and didn’t want to harm his opponent.

    it was a definite red. But we can’t cry about it. Vs Lazio earlier in the season, Bakayoko came on as a second half sub and then immediately picked up a yellow. and then during a challenge, he stamped cleanly on a Lazio player’s calf and somehow didn’t get sent off. Referee with an error, but then Theo could’ve also been sent off today as well.

    Dangerous play is dangerous play, Regardless of whether it was intentional or not.
    Should have been a red for sure.
    Milan getting penalized by so many officiating calls this season its ridiculous.
