Costa, 28, got into a tussle with substitute Federico di Francesco where he elbowed the forward, before getting into a heated argument.

The midfielder then appeared to spit into Di Francesco’s MOUTH before headbutting him.

Initially referee Daniele Chiffi showed him a yellow card, but moments later sent Costa off for unsportsmanlike conduct after a word in his ear from VAR.
