(Video): Watch As Laporte Slap Modric And Fell Over As Both Involved In A Heated Debate During Mardrid Vs City

Aymeric Laporte was lucky to avoid a red card early in Manchester City’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid on Wednesday.

The City defender was at the center of an ugly off-the-ball incident after Casemiro had fouled Kevin De Bruyne inside the opening 10 minutes.

As the players surrounded the referee, Laporte and Modric were seen pushing each other, before Vinicius Junior barged into the City center-back.

Laporte then appeared to slap Modric’s face while simultaneously falling backwards.

Italian ref Daniele Orsato issued yellow cards to both Laporte and Modric, before the VAR confirmed that there was no need to upgrade either to a red.null

But had Orsato initially deemed that Laporte’s slap was worthy of a sending off for violent conduct, it is highly unlikely that the VAR would have overturned that decision either.
