DTotD: Emerson Sheik gets away with biting opponent during Copa Libertadores final

Dirty Tackle

Scoring twice in the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final apparently made Corinthians' Emerson Sheik hungry for the taste of human flesh because near the end of the match, he bit down on an opponent's hand. And he didn't even get booked for it.

After scoring his brace to ensure Corinthians' first-ever Copa Libertadores title, Emerson was fouled by Boca Juniors defender Matias Caruzzo just before injury time and Emerson's response was to bite Caruzzo on the hand. The ref apparently didn't see Emerson's chomp because Corinthians was able to substitute him shortly after this without so much as a booking.

Emerson, who was accused of "acts of indiscipline" by former club Fluminense before he joined Corinthians, could now face a suspension for the bite since it was caught by TV cameras. In 2010, Luis Suarez was given a seven-match ban by the Dutch football federation for biting an opponent on the shoulder during a match between Ajax and PSV.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
