Last night wasn't just any other for Ronald Araujo. The Uruguayan defender, a regular B team starter, was handed his debut as a substitute against Sevilla when Jean-Clair Todibo got tired. However he ended up being cruelly sent off by Mateo Lahoz, who thought he fouled Chicharito when he did no such thing.

Regardless, Araujo posted a message on Twitter after the game. "Thanks to God and all my family," he wrote. "Today is a special day, it makes me very happy to officially debut at the best club in the world." The Uruguayan is the fourth captain of the B team.
