Mexes was sent off for two yellow cards, but should’ve seen red earlier for punching Giorgio Chiellini on the back of the head during a corner. He is likely to be subject to video action.
Allegri insisted: “It wasn’t a punch, it was a tussle in the box and he hit him on the back. If you want to call it a punch, then call it that, but there are a thousand different fouls like that in the box. He didn’t even catch his face. It was absolutely not a punch.”
