The teenager played for Rapid Vienna against Sturm Graz on Sunday in his first Austria Bundesliga match after being promoted from the club's second team.

Unfortunately for the centre-half, the occasion lasted less than a minute.

Hofmann chopped down Graz forward Robert Berić inside the box in the first attack of the game, and was then shown a straight red card.

After Hofmann trudged off before he could even break a sweat, Nikola Vujadinović converted the early penalty to put Graz 1-0 ahead,

Despite being a goal down and a man down so early, Rapid went on to win 4-2.
