Real madrid defender Sergio Ramos is hoping the club will appeal the red card he received in the Champions League last-16 first tie against Manchester City last week.
The Blues have celebrated their 2 – 1 win over the Catalan giants at the Bernabeu due to Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne’s goals. Ramos was sent off the game after fouling Jesus to deny another goalscoring opportunity.
As the Spanish side will face Pep Guardiola’s team for the second tie on March 17, the 33-year-old is hoping the club to launch an appeal over his red card.
He said: “For me, it was a slight touch. The possibility of appealing is there. For me, definitely. Any option of me playing that match, Madrid will look at and I will apply pressure. The criteria is relative. Some say yes and others say no. That’s football and you can’t go back. There’s still a wonderful game to come.”
