El Clasico Real Madrid vs Barcelona: Sergio Busquets stepped on Pepe’s head

Barcelona got a big win over Real Madrid in their El Clasico match up. The game started off as a back and forth of scoring, until late in the first half when a bit of a scuffle broke out following a goal from Lionel Messi. During that fight it appears as if Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets stepped on the head of Real Madrid defender Pepe.

Pierre-Phillipe Marcou of Getty Images caught the scene in a picture, with Busquets foot on Pepe’s head. It appears as if Busquets was trying to step over Pepe to get involved in another scuffle.

I watched the game and missed it, I turned the whole sequence into a GIF and you can watch for yourself to try and spot it. Early on the camera angle changes and it looks like you see Pepe on the ground just seconds after Busquets stepped on his head. It looks like the Barcelona players are aware of what happened and you can see several players checking on Pepe.
