Should Real Madrid make it to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals, Los Blancos will be without their captain.

UEFA announced on Thursday it was levying an additional one-game suspension on top of Ramos’ coming one game suspension in the Champions League. Ramos picked up a late yellow card which earned him a one match suspension for yellow card accumulation.

After the match, Ramos seemed to admit that he picked up the yellow card on a tactical foul on purpose so he could wipe his yellow card slate clean. Ramos tried to talk back his comments but it appears UEFA didn’t but it.
