Ramos fouled Ajax forward Kasper Dolberg in the 89th minute with Real 2-1 up, meaning he is suspended for the last-16 second.

Real Madrid center-back Sergio Ramos has been handed a two-game suspension by UEFA for deliberately getting himself booked during his team's Champions League last 16, first leg against Ajax.

The action prompted UEFA to open investigation and after deliberation by the Disciplinary Committee on Thursday, it was agreed that the Madrid player is handed a two-match ban.

European football's governing body charged the Spanish worldwide under Article 15, which could lead to at least a two-match suspension. "Ramos will be suspended for two games for picking up a yellow card on goal", 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.

- Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos has been given two-game European ban for deliberate booking, AFP reported on February 28, 2019.

It probably didn't help Ramos' case when the 32-year-old admitted to reporters: "I'd be lying if I said I didn't force [the booking]". "By the way, a match in which I did not play".

"It is not to underestimate the opponent nor to think that the series is over, but in football you have to make tough decisions".

Real resume their bid for a fourth consecutive Champions League title in the return leg against Ajax on March 5.
