Wolves duo Yerson Mosquera and Daniel Podence sent off in chaotic first-half against Levante

Wolves are currently taking on Levante in their second game of their pre-season trip to Spain – and Yerson Mosquera and Daniel Podence were both sent off in an absolutely chaotic first-half.

Wanderers were looking to build on last night’s 4-0 win over Deportivo Alaves.

Wolves went into this morning’s game in high spirits after a great performance last night.

But that mood very quickly turned to rage this morning.

From the off, physical challenges were flying in from the Spanish side.

Towards the end of the half, one heavy challenge went in on Yerson Mosquera, who had already been fouled several times earlier in the game.

The Colombian starlet reacted furiously, which prompted a melee by the touchline, with players and staff from both benches pouring onto the pitch.

The referee brandished a red card for Mosquera and Enis Bardhi, before the game eventually continued after a five-minute delay.

Mosquera’s reaction was understandable, given he has lost a lot of development time at Wolves after tearing his hamstring shortly after joining.

Just before the half-time whistle, the two teams clashed again. Daniel Podence, who had also been the subject of some rough treatment, was then also shown a red card.

The winger clashed with a Levante player as he made a darting run away after releasing his pass, and another mass brawl ensued.

There was actually some brief talk of the game not continuing for a second half.

But the game is back underway, with both teams back to 11 versus 11.

Levante currently lead 2-1, with Salvador and Giorgi Kochorashvili on target for the Spaniards. Toti Gomes scored a header on 81 minutes.
