NEWCASTLE star Fabian Schar was lucky not to receive a red card for his horrific fight against Wolves star Pedro Neto at 1:1 of the teams.
The Magpies met Wolves in a heated Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.
Ruben Neves put the Wolves ahead at the Molineux with a superb first-half finish.
Wolves were close to taking three points before Allan Saint-Maximin equalized in the last minute.
Both teams fought in vain for victory in eight minutes of stoppage time.
However, the match could have ended differently if Schar had received his marching orders for his ferocious challenge against Neto early in the second half.
Schar’s tough duel culminated in him being booked for the offense and Neto going down injured.
The centre-back held his breath as VAR scrutinized the challenge but he was able to continue after the system deemed the breach not red-worthy.
Neto soon returned to action, although fans were furious that Schar was not removed from the game for his challenge.
Sky Sports continued to question users Twitter when they thought Schar should have been sent away.

And one fan replied emphatically in the affirmative, while claiming it would have been a different result had Schar played for Manchester United.
Another fan bluntly said, “Yeah, it’s not a fair challenge.”
A third user, who supports Newcastle, even admitted Schar should have been further penalized, adding: “Yes and I support the team lol.”
Schar then had a chance to win the game for Newcastle with the final shot of the game but he sent his free kick wide.
The Magpies are seventh after the clash while the Wolves are 19th after four games with just two points.
