Francis Coquelin was sent off for two bookable offences during Freiburg’s eventful 3-3 draw with Hoffenheim.
The 22 year old started the game on the left wing, but received a yellow card five minutes before half-time, and was then sent off just a minute later following another late challenge. Freiburg also had two other players and their coach dismissed, but still managed to hold on for a point in an enthralling game.
Chuks Aneke also had an eventful afternoon, with the midfielder conceding a penalty which was squandered by Kevin Lisbie and later hitting the crossbar with a ferocious strike as Crewe Alexandra lost 2-0 to Leyton Orient in League One. Aneke, who played the whole 90 minutes, also came close with several other efforts and was booked for the penalty incident.
Joel Campbell, meanwhile, played the whole game as Olympiacos beat Atromitos 2-1 in the Greek Super League. Wellington was an un-used substitute as Real Murcia beat Mallorca 4-2 in Liga Adelante.
Ignasi Miquel made the Leicester City bench for the first time, but remained un-used throughout as his temporary side secured a dramatic 3-2 victory over Birmingham City in the Championship. In the Bundesliga Johan Djourou missed out through injury as Hamburg lost 1-0 to Hertha Berlin.
Josh Vickers was not in action after Canvey Island’s fixture with Blliericay Town was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
