Manchester United seemed to have found their midfield star in Casemiro this year, but they will have to get used to playing without him for some time.
For what the referee deemed to be a hard challenge against Southampton, the former Real Madrid player was dismissed.
Manchester United may still challenge the judgment even though Casemiro's guilty foot seemed to bounce off the ball's top before making contact with Carlos Alcaraz. But, it seems unlikely that they would be successful.
Casemiro had only earned two yellow cards for transgressions before to arriving to England, so he wasn't used to getting straight red cards. In his last three Premier League games, he has now been shown two straight red cards.
Because of everything, the Brazilian will be absent from Manchester United for a while, but how many games will he miss and—possibly more importantly—which games will they be?
In the Premier League, a straight red card for this kind of behavior often entails an automatic three-match ban. That is a vital part of football, as we all know.
Due to Casemiro collecting his second consecutive red card of the season, he will be compelled to sit out four games.
Casemiro will make his next domestic appearance for Manchester United on April 15 against Nottingham Forest due to an upcoming international break.
Both good and bad news may be found in this situation for Casemiro and Manchester United.
The good news is that despite the suspension, he will still be allowed to play in the Europa League. The midfielder will thus be available this week when Manchester United plays Real Betis in Spain.
He will, however, be required to miss the next FA Cup quarterfinal encounter against Fulham the following weekend as part of his punishment.
The FA Cup game against Fulham will serve as the first of the four games in punishment. But he will be available for the semifinal if Manchester United wins.
It may matter if he misses the first Premier League match. Newcastle United, the opponent, still has hope of making the top four. In addition, Manchester United will be the target of the Magpies' vengeance due to their defeat in the Carabao Cup final, which Casemiro scored in.
Following that, Manchester United welcomes Brentford at Old Trafford in an effort to take revenge after losing to Brentford 4-0 in August.
Casemiro will finish off his term in the home game against Everton on April 8 after that.
