Chicao Smears Blood On Opponent's Face During Match (VIDEO)

Santa Cruz midfielder Chicao has been handed a two-match suspension after he rubbed his own blood on an opponent's face during a Serie C match in October, according to the Associated Press.

Chicao was upset after taking a vicious elbow from Fortaleza player Esley that caused him to bleed profusely from a cut above his eye, per Eurosport. As seen in the video above, Chicao then ran over to Esley and smeared the blood dripping down his own face onto the face of his opponent.

Esley was suspended for five matches for his part in this messy affair.

Fortaleza ultimately won the match 2-1.
