Important news over the Carvajal-Mandzukic battle. The Croatian striker tweeted that Carvajal did not bite him.


Good morning! Yesterday's game was very tough and both teams gave their best, but for me there is no controversy involved, no bite or anything.

It was already hard for UEFA or FIFA to prove that Carvajal had bitten Mandzukic, but considering that both players involved denied this controversy, it's fair to say that Carvajal will not be punished for what happened yesterday at the Vicente Calderón, although it's true that the right-back did punch Mandzukic in the stomach. That will not be an easy matter to deal with, but Carvajal has every right to feel safe after Mario Mandzukic's tweet.
