REAL MADRID star Dani Ceballos sparked a riot in the Spanish Supercup final by pulling Barcelona star Gavi’s hair.
The Catalan giants won El Clasico 3-1 and lifted the trophy after the scuffle.
Los Blancos were 3-0 down and in an attempt to change the game, coach Carlo Ancelotti brought on midfielder Ceballos with 25 minutes remaining.
In the latter stages of the game, the obviously frustrated ex-Arsenal midfielder started an altercation by pulling Gavi back by the hair.
The 18-year-old held onto the ball when he complained to the referee but Ceballos grabbed his head and yanked him back.
Gavi responded by urging the Real Madrid man, which made team-mate Robert Lewandowski feel like he needed to intervene to calm things down.
Vinicius Junior then tried to confront the teenager, who was being protected by the Polish striker as he yelled back at his opponent.
The whole incident went unpunished, with both Ceballos and Gavi receiving only warnings.
However, Barca defender Ronald Araujo demanded action and charged the official to signal that Gavi’s hair had just been pulled.
In the end, it was Barcelona who last laughed at their bitter rivals as they clinched the first trophy of the season.

Goals from Pedri, Lewandowski and Gavi himself made the difference as Karim Benzema also scored a last-minute consolation goal.
Curiously, this isn’t the first time a Barca player has been involved in a barnet-pulling incident in recent weeks.
Earlier this month, Ferran Torres and Stefan Savic were sent off for fighting in their La Liga clash with Atletico Madrid.
Torres and Savic ended up fighting on the ground, with the Spanish attacker grabbing the Atletico defender’s hair.
