Let's not skirt around this: Douglas Costa spitting in Federico Di Francesco's mouth is the most disgusting thing Le Buzz has seen on a football pitch.

In one of the most revolting scenes imaginable on a field of play, Costa leaned right in and gobbed into Di Francesco's mouth.

But let's break this horrific incident down - because, yes, there was more to it than just the spitting.

Costa, as if he could add to his crime sheet inside a minute, carved down Di Francesco with a totally unnecessary challenge off the ball.

The Brazilian's challenge did nothing to prevent Sassuolo scoring - and then it all got much worse.

An elbow reportedly followed from Di Francesco, prompting Costa to headbutt his opponent in a very unsavoury move.

To top it all off, the 28-year-old then spat in Di Francesco's mouth in a shocking turn of events.

Absolutely disgusting. Costa was rightly shown the red card after VAR got involved, and surely a lengthy ban will now follow.

Consider Cristiano Ronaldo's two goals well and truly overshadowed.
