Beijing Guoan striker Burak Yilmaz was shown a straight red card today, after he was caught slapping an opposition player during a scuffle on the pitch.
Yilmaz’s dismissal follows hot on the heels of last week’s mass brawl between Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou R&F.
Ex-Chelsea midfielder Oscar was handed an eight match ban for the role he played in the chaos, with players from both sides downing tools to get involved.
We’re not sure if there’s something in the Far East’s water that could be affecting the temperament of players in the Chinese Super League…
What ever is going on, it isn’t good news for former Galatasaray frontman Yilmaz, who will likely be handed a similar lengthy ban, after he was caught slapping a player this afternoon:

Having won two league titles in his homeland, as well as representing Turkey 48 times, you’d expect Yilmaz to have the experience and levelheadedness to walk away from a confrontation.
That didn’t seem to be the case this afternoon though…
