Nigerian midfielder Ubon Ekpai played 14 minutes for FC Viktoria Plzen in their 1-2 away loss to Real Madrid.

It was an eventful game for Ekpai whose tackle on Marcelo forced the Real Madrid leftback to be substituted.

That was the second Champions League game this season for the 23-year-old.

Dream, also want to say sorry to Marcelo for my tackle was not intentional,” he wrote on Instagram after the game.
