The U.S. national team midfielder set up Demy de Zeeuw's opener before picking up a second yellow card late in Anderlecht's 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain.Sacha Kljestan exerienced the highs and lows of the beautiful game in a 14-minute span Tuesday, assisting a strike for Anderlecht before receiving his marching orders.
In the Belgian side's 1-1 draw at Paris Saint-Germain, the U.S. national team midfielder set up Demy de Zeeuw's opener in the 68th minute, then received a second yellow card for a handball in the 82nd minute.
Kljestan's assist came on a darting run down the left side of the penalty area, with the 28-year-old playing a low centering feed that de Zeeuw converted. But Kljestan was then sent off after he stuck out his elbow to stop a chipped pass from Javier Pastore some 40 yards from goal.
Although Kljestan hasn't missed a minute of Champions League action for Anderlecht (0-3-1), he will now be suspended for its match against Benfica on Nov. 27.
