After only 2 red cards in 222 Real Madrid games, Casemiro has picked up 3 already since joining Man United last season

Casemiro’s unwavering passion for victory is often seen as a reflection of the winning mentality associated with Real Madrid. Even after his move to Manchester United, he has continued to bring that intense drive to the pitch. He’s been a vital presence for the team in some of their most intense matches last season and this season.

However, it’s true that his passion and eagerness to win can sometimes lead to overzealous tackles and incidents that result in red cards. While his determination is commendable, striking the right balance between intensity and discipline is an ongoing challenge for any player with such a competitive spirit.

Casemiro has already picked up 3 red cards

Casemiro has enjoyed a successful career with several trophies, especially at Real Madrid. However, he is no stranger to picking up red cards.

When Manchester United signed him in a bid to reinforce their midfield, they were seeking his tenacious and determined style to infuse more energy into the team. However, at times, that very competitive edge has resulted in him receiving red cards, which can be a double-edged sword for a player known for his aggressive playing style.

Casemiro was shown his first-ever red card for Real Madrid in 2019. Before this, he had played a total of 188 matches for Real Madrid without any dismissal. Despite Madrid’s victory in the match, he was shown a red card against Real Valladolid.

In April 2021, Casemiro found himself sent off during a match against Barcelona. In injury time, he received two yellow cards, leading to his dismissal from the game. Interestingly, despite Casemiro’s red card, his team managed to secure all three points with a 2-1 victory, showing their resilience and determination to succeed even when down to 10 men.

Since joining Manchester United, Casemiro has had a couple more incidents leading to red cards. In February, during a heated match against Crystal Palace, he was involved in an altercation where he was seen as having a confrontational interaction with Will Hughes that resembled a “stranglehold.”


The culmination of this feisty encounter resulted in a post-game brawl, leading to both clubs being fined £55,000 for their roles in the scuffle. Such incidents highlight the fiery nature of some of the matches in which Casemiro has been involved.

Casemiro also picked up a straight red card in the match against Southampton in March. His tackle on Carlos Alcaraz was considered so grievous that he was initially handed a yellow card and later a red one after the referee checked the pitchside monitor.

The Brazilian midfielder received his recent red card last night during the Champions League clash against Galatasaray. Andre Onana made a pass that fell on the opposition. Casemiro attempted to avert the impending danger in the box, but it turned out to be a complete sweep of the player. He was shown a second yellow and sent out in the 77th minute.

What matches Casemiro to miss after UCL red card for Man United?

Casemiro is United’s leading goalscorer in all competitions this season, leading so far with four goals to his name. Casemiro, being on a yellow card already, was shown the second and sent off following his foul on Dries Mertens inside the penalty area during yesterday’s Champions League clash. This incident occurred when the Belgian forward capitalized on a loose pass from Manchester United’s goalkeeper, Andre Onana, and was completely swept off the ball by Casemiro, resulting in a penalty.

Maro Icardi stepped forward to take the resulting penalty but missed, sending it wide. However, the Argentine striker displayed remarkable composure following his failed goal attempt. He managed to put Galatasaray in the lead at 3-2 just a few minutes later by skillfully lifting the ball over Manchester United’s goalkeeper, Andre Onana.

This turnaround came after Galatasaray had fallen behind 2-1, with Rasmus Hojlund netting his second goal of the game just over 10 minutes earlier. Icardi’s ability to bounce back from the penalty miss and contribute to his team’s success showcased his resilience on the pitch.

Manchester United suffered an unfortunate loss despite the fact that they’d dominated for most of the game. It is also rather unfortunate that Casemiro, United’s midfield enforcer, will miss their next Champions League clash with FC Copenhagen after being sent off in last night’s 3-2 defeat to Galatasaray.
