Manchester City – Real Madrid: The risk of resorting to Ramos' red against City: could the penalty be increased? | Champions League 2019

Manchester City – Real Madrid



Orsato shows the red one to Ramos last Wednesday at the Bernabéu.

Sergio Ramos hopes that Real Madrid will appeal the expulsion he suffered as a direct red against Manchester City at the Bernabéu in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League to have options to play the return on March 17 in the Etihad, where the white team will try to overcome the 1-2 embedded in its stadium.

Madrid studied at first to present an appeal for the expulsion of its captain, who four minutes from the end of the game he knocked down the Brazilian Gabriel Jesus when he left alone towards Courtois with 1-2 on the scoreboard, to understand that the punishment of the Italian colleague Daniele Orsato was excessive.

The appeal has not yet been moved to UEFA, which has not yet published the sanctions for the first leg of the round of 16, and, according to Efe sources of the club, provokes internal debate by the danger that can be run that the punishment is greater. Ramos, however, made his wish clear after Sunday's classic against Barcelona.

The Madrid captain defends that “It is a very light touch” that he had with Gabriel Jesus and that “can be beaten or not”. That is why he hopes that Real Madrid will appeal and use up the tracks so that he can be present at the meeting back in Etihad.

“The possibility that may have to resort to it (the expulsion) on our part will be made. For me, of course it is used, any percentage that exists to play that game I suppose that Real Madrid will take advantage of it and I will put some pressure to be done, “said Ramos.

“Especially because of the form, because in the end the referee's criteria are very relative. For some it may be and for others it may not, but it may be foul and yellow or whistle against it. There is a wonderful game back and play or not play, we are going to leave our lives, “he added.
