Sergio Ramos received a 2-match Champions League ban for admitting he intentionally received a yellow card against Ajax.

Ramos will miss the second-leg match against Ajax, and the first-leg of Real Madrid's quarterfinals match if they move on.

"It was a dangerous counter-attack in the 88th minute in an open game in the elimination stage of the competition which is why I said that I'd be lying if I said I didn't know that I could be punished. I knew that I had no choice and that's what I meant when I said that in football you must make complicated decisions. If I wanted to force the suspension then I'd have done it in the group stage," explained Ramos.
