The RB Leipzig man saw red once again, this time for his country, as the hosts were rolled over in front of their own fans

Liverpool-bound Naby Keita was sent off for the second time in three appearances for club and country as Guinea went down to a 4-1 home loss to Tunisia in a World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

RB Leipzig midfielder Keita, who will join Liverpool in a club-record deal reportedly worth £48million in 2018, had opened the scoring for the already-eliminated hosts in Conakry.

15/2 for Liverpool and Utd to draw 0-0

But after Youssef Msakni struck twice to turn the game around for Tunisia and Mohamed Amine Ben Amor sealed the points with their third, Keita was sent off in injury time.

The midfielder was driving forward in possession but caught Ben Amor with a stray arm, leaving the Tunisian clutching his face.

Zambian official Janny Sikazwe produced a red card and Tunisia then went on to add a fourth goal, Msakni completing his hat-trick to put his side on the brink of qualification.

Keita has already been dismissed once this season, the midfielder shown a red card after leaving Borussia Monchengladbach's Christoph Kramer bloodied by a high challenge during a 2-2 Bundesliga draw in September.
