Casemiro, returning to the team after his domestic ban, was enjoying a top performance in midfield.

And he put his body on the line as he dived in to win a tackle despite Lamela approaching quickly from the side.

Casemiro got to the ball first.

But Lamela failed to get out of the way and ended up clattering into the Brazilian, who was already on the ground.
