The yellow card remedied against Ajax could cost a two-day stop to Sergio Ramos which is therefore likely to skip any quarter-finals in Champions League . The captain of Real Madrid was cautioned for a foul on Dolberg in the final match against Ajax, the first round of the eighth finals of the continental competition, won by blancos for 2-1 at home of the Dutch.
Ramos, already wary, will certainly miss the return challenge against the Dutch at the Bernabeu . But his post-race declarations, which make one think of a caution sought to get 'clean' to the hypothetical fourth, risk aggravating his position. In the mixed zone, the defender admitted: «I would be lying if I said I had not forced the intervention. It is not to underestimate the opponent or because we think we have already passed the turn, but sometimes in football you have to make difficult decisions and I have decided so ». Ramos then corrected the shot in a post on twitter : «I want to clarify that I have not forced the card, I will support my teammates from the stands as an extra fan with the dream of being able to go to the quarterfinals ".
