With a crossed shot in the upper right-hand corner he left Barça’s goalkeeper Ter Stegen completely hopeless and he ran to the touchline to his wonderful goal to celebrate. He pulled off his shirt and the referee could not be otherwise than yellow pull, that write the regulations now once for.

Not much later, it was Ronaldo on In the Rose sent off, but the German had to this time not in action. The Portuguese attacker saw a Catalan defender on him down and went after a light contact on the ground. Referee service De Burgos Bengoechea saw a schwalbe in and gave Ronaldo a second yellow and then red.

A penalty kick was not, but a fopduik either. Ronaldo felt aggrieved and went story. CR7 got little hearing and gave the referee a light shove in his back.

For which action will give the Portuguese world star now, after four days suspension. For the two yellow cards he is also a match suspended, and that brings the total to five.

The match in Camp Nou ended incidentally at 1-3 in favor of Madrid. On Wednesday 16 August, the decisive return in the stadium of the Portuguese.
