Trailing 3-1, Juan Cuadrado was thrown into the mix to try and up the tempo against Real Madrid.
But the gamble did not exactly pay off, as the Colombian was sent back down the tunnel for a double booking just minutes after entering play.
Between his idiotic attack on Sergio Ramos and the defender's rather theatrical reaction, the incident certainly gave fans food for thought.
Wow, Ramos... I don't even know what to say. Cuadrado didn't even do anything. He was running to get the ball. Speechless.— Kristian Sturt (@FootieWriter) 3 de junio de 2017
66': Juan Cuadrado subbed on. 72': Juan Cuadrado gets a yellow. 84': Juan Cuadrado gets sent off. Awful 18 minutes. pic.twitter.com/6tnzbPNBM4— Squawka News (@SquawkaNews) 3 de junio de 2017
Disgraceful from Sergio Ramos. Cuadrado touches his back and he goes flying. Absolute joke.— Chelsea HQ (@Chelsea_HQ) 3 de junio de 2017
By the way: The assistant ref who stood by while Ramos freight-trained Cuadrado and then missed his dive has no business in UCL final.— Michael DeCourcy (@tsnmike) June 3, 2017
Juve deserve to lose for not two footing Ramos immediately after he got Cuadrado sent off.— James (@JamesHWynn) June 3, 2017
