Ramos earns UEFA’s 2 match ban, PSG fined

Ramos was too smart for his own good

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has been given an additional one-game ban by UEFA after he was found guilty of purposely picking up a yellow card during the first leg of their Champions League match against Ajax.

However, European football body UEFA has now announced that he has been handed a two-match suspension for "clearly receiving a yellow card on purpose", which will see him miss the first leg of the quarter-final if Real advance to the next round.

The Spain worldwide then suggested in an interview after the match that he had been booked intentionally so as to avoid the risk of a suspension in the quarter-finals, although he later backtracked on those comments. "Ramos will be suspended for two games for picking up a yellow card on objective", was UEFA's explanation.

Mere minutes after Marco Asensio put Real 2-1 up in the 87th minute, the Real Madrid skipper clattered Kasper Dolberg very blatantly and got himself in the book for the 38th time in the Champions League - and the 201st time in his Los Blancos career.

I love our homegrown guys", Montfort said. "I love playing with this group". Only pitcher Zack Greinke makes more per season at $34.4 million annually.

But having later admitted to getting the booking on goal and there being video footage of him asking the bench if he should get a caution, UEFA have found him guilty of "forcing a yellow card" and subsequently acted by banning him for the next two games.

"The truth is that given the result, I'd be lying if I said it wasn't something I had in mind", Ramos said after the first leg in Amsterdam.

Despite those comments UEFA opened an investigation into the incident the following day and have now made a decision to take disciplinary action.

UEFA said Ramos had deliberately aimed of being clear for a potential quarter-final tie.
