KEVIN DE BRUYNE fumed at the referee after being TRIPPED by the official in the build-up to RB Leipzig’s second goal.
The Belgian was jogging back towards his own goal, when he inadvertently collided with ref Serdar Gozubuyuk.

Play wasn’t halted, with RB Leipzig rapidly counter-attacking down the field.
And when Christopher Nkunku nodded the ball past Ederson, the 30-year-old was visibly furious.
De Bruyne berated Gozubuyuk after the goal.
But there was nothing the official could do but award the effort, which brought the German side back into the game at 3-2.
The game had already had its fair share of chaos, with City’s second goal also possessing a farcical element.
Danger hadn’t seemed imminent, when De Bruyne whipped in a cross from the right in the 28th minute.
But defender Nordi Mukiele endured a moment he’d rather forget, nodding past his own helpless goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi and into the back of the net.
