DOUGLAS COSTA could land himself in hot water after appearing to spit in an opponents mouth — after elbowing and headbutting him.
The Juventus star was shown a red card after a VAR review in the dying seconds of Juventus’ 2-1 win over Sassuolo.
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.
