Cristiano
Ronaldo has been handed a five-match ban after shoving referee Ricardo de
Burgos Bengoetxea moments after being sent off during last night’s win over
Barcelona.
Left
out of the starting line-up, Ronaldo scored with a beautiful strike to make it
2-1 in the 80th minute and earned a yellow card for taking off his shirt to
flex his muscles at Camp Nou.

The
Real Madrid star was booked again just two minutes later for diving in the area
and reacted to the decision by shoving the referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea
from behind.
Ronaldo
will now miss Wednesday’s second leg in Madrid and four La Liga matches. He was
also fined £2,700.
Madrid
went ahead in the 50th from an own-goal by Barcelona defender Gerard Pique.
Lionel
Messi equalised for Barcelona in the 77th when he converted a penalty after
Luis Suarez was fouled by goalkeeper Keylor Navas.
Marco
Asensio got 10-man Madrid’s third goal in the 90th, The Telegraph said.
Mateo
Kovacic could have given Real the lead in the first minute after Marc-Andre ter
Stegen’s poor clearance gifted a chance to the visitors, but the midfielder’s
attempted lob fell into the backtracking goalkeeper’s arms.
At
the other end Luis Suarez tested Keylor Navas and Gerard Deulofeu failed to
pick out a team-mate with his cut-back after reaching the byline.
Isco
cut in from the left after 18 minutes but dragged his shot wide, and seven
minutes later Messi went close with a free-kick which whistled over the
crossbar.
Pique
was booked for using his hand to try and convert a Barca corner, before Ter
Stegen atoned for his earlier error with a smart save to deny Gareth Bale after
he was picked out by Isco.
