Manchester City backup goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has been sent off the pitch in Atalanta, some 35 minutes after starter Ederson left the match with injury.

A poor back pass from Ilkay Gundogan sent Josip Ilicic 1v1 with Bravo, who raced out to meet him with the score 1-1 in Bergamo.

Ilicic pushed the ball past the Chilean and leapt over him, hitting the turf when his trail leg was caught by the sliding keeper.

Kyle Walker entered the match in a “C. Bravo 1” jersey, and would have to face a free kick from 10 yards outside the box.

Walker bobbled but rescued the ensuing free kick, plenty successful given the scenario.
