Real Madrid lose appeal as Ronaldo FIVE match ban upheld

Cristiano Ronaldo will serve a five-match ban after Real Madrid failed in a bid to overturn the red card he received in the 3-1 Spanish Super Cup first-leg win over Barcelona, reports Sky Sports.

The Portugal forward was given his marching orders at the Nou Camp on Sunday after picking up two yellow cards - one for taking his shirt off after scoring and the other for diving.

After receiving his second yellow card, Ronaldo appeared to push referee Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea and was subsequently hit with a five-match suspension by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) - one for the double booking and another four for pushing the official.
