Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has added more fuel for those claiming that he is a dirty player. 

The controversial Blancos captain left Viktoria Plzen defender Milan Havel bloodied in a Champions League group stage encounter on Wednesday.

Racing over to cut off a threat, Ramos raised his elbow as he passed by Havel, catching him in the face and leaving the defender down in a heap. 

Havel was able to continue after receiving treatment on the pitch, with Ramos fortunately escaping any kind of punishment for the incident. 

The incident received plenty of attention on social media. Here are some of the best reactions.

The 32-year-old is no stranger to attracting controversy in the Champions League, most recently with his takedown of Mohamed Salah in last year's final that left the Egyptian with a dislocated shoulder. 

Madrid were hardly bothered by Ramos' antics on Wednesday, however, as they scored an easy 5-0 win over the Czech side.
