Take a look at this sliding tackle that clearly cost this player a card. This action happened during a match for the Campeonato Metropolitano in Buenos Aires where Ciudad was facing Santa Barbara.
The Santa Barbara player went to intercept the opponent at full speed while sliding down. He made impact on the legs of the jumping opponent who went down on the ground.
