The Night In Pictures: Estadio Manuel Ruiz de Lopera Edition

Without the benefit of live pictures on either Sky Sports News or The Fox Soccer Report, I was left with a piqued interest in last night's bottle throwing incident in Seville. While Sky (7pm ET edition) didn't even bother showing the goals from the Real Betis v. Athletic Bilbao match, Fox showed the goals, but failed to show or even mention that Athletic keeper Armando Ribeiro was hit in the face by a bottle thrown from the stands. These screen grabs tell the story:

Keep in mind that Betis were given a three match stadium ban a little over a year ago after a similar incident knocked out former Sevilla coach Juande Ramos.
