MOSCOW, October 24 (RIA Novosti)
Rubin Kazan defender Ivan Marcano has been suspended for three Russian Premier League matches for a brutal foul in their 2-0 away defeat to CSKA Moscow on Sunday.
The Spaniard received a straight red card for a karate-style kick at Keisuke Honda in the 72nd minute.
The ban leaves Kurban Berdyev's side without their two main center backs as another Spaniard, Cesar Navas, was handed a seven-match suspension last week for breaking the jaw of Amkar Perm's Martin Jakubko.
Marcano, who moved to Kazan from Villareal in June, has made 10 league appearances for the Tatarstan side.
Rubin are eighth in the league.

We have witnessed the total defeat of western Ukraine, Western nationalists and the West in general, which made the unfortunate decision to support the anti-government activity. They failed to realize that the collapse of Yanukovych means the collapse of Ukrainian unity. They set fire to their own home and planted a time bomb under Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
