Fraizer Campbell watched with interest when Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir showed Manchester United's Nani a red card during their European Champions League clash with Real Madrid.
The Bluebirds striker knows how it feels to see red when Cakir is in charge, having been sent off by the same referee while on England duty.
Campbell was dismissed by Cakir four years while playing for England in an under-21 international against Sweden.

The Foxes have played Cardiff away 20 times in all. The Bluebirds have won 14, drawn seven and lost eight, scoring 50 goals and conceding 35.
In matches home and away, Cardiff and Leicester have met 56 times. In all, Cardiff have won 21, drawn 13 and lost 22, scoring 72 and conceding 76.


We look back at August 1951: Cardiff City 4, Leicester City 0

This was Cardiff City's best opening day result since they had entered the Football League in 1920,
Their 4-0 win against Leicester at Ninian Park during August 1951 was also the first time City had earned a victory on the opening day of a season since 1934 - a wait of 17 years!
Since winning promotion as Division Three (South) champions in 1946-47, Cardiff had finished fifth (1948), fourth (1949), 10th (1950) and third (1951).
Only two clubs were promoted in those days and this time the Bluebirds went up, finishing runners-up to Sheffield Wednesday in Division Two. They returned to Division One.
