[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Udinese midfielder Giampiero Pinzi only got a yellow card for this crazy tackle on Stuart Downing in last Thursday's Europa League game at Anfield.

On Friday, we showed you Giovanni Pasquale's impressive winner from this entertaining win by Udinese. Things may have turned out differently, if Referee Stefan Johannesson had seen fit to give Pinzi a red card for his shocking foul in the 68th minute.

Pinzi can be seen laughing throughout, as if he knows Udinese will go on to win, 3-2, after taking the lead just two minutes later....
