Real Madrid captain Ramos sanctioned by UEFA

Sergio Ramos

The Real Madrid captain, who was a booking away from suspension, saw the card for a bad foul on Ajax player Kaspar Dolberg with Madrid winning 2-1 in the closing minutes of the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie.

The disciplinary body of UEFA meted a two-match ban for the Real Madrid defender for deliberately getting into the referee's book in the Real Madrid 2-1 win over Ajax in the Champions League.

The Spain global 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.

Following an investigation opened by Uefa Ramos was handed an additional one match for obtaining the booking on goal.

A investigation was launched into the match and an additional one-match ban was added to his suspension.

India and Pakistan routinely trade fire and blame the other for starting skirmishes along the frontier. He did not elaborate. "The guard over there just said we have to go down to the basement to sleep.

He received a yellow card in the dying minutes of the game for a late tackle on Kasper Dolberg, ruling himself out of the second leg, and theoretically clearing his record for the remainder of the competition.

That ruled the 32-year-old out of the second leg but would have ensured he was available for the quarter-final.

"Not to underestimate the opponent, but sometimes you have to take these decisions and that's what I decided", he said in a post-match interview with El Chiringuito TV.

Valencia midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia was also given a two-game ban for being booked on goal in his side's 2-0 Europa League last-32 win at Celtic this month.

Kondogbia will now miss both legs of his side's last-16 tie against FC Krasnodar next month.
