Real Madrid: Dani Carvajal suspended for Champions League last 16 opener

The old "disguised deliberate yellow card" is a trick which has been used before, but Carvajal didn't do a very good job of hiding it.

However, following an investigation, the UEFA Controls, Ethics, and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) have deemed Carvajal's action to have fallen foul of their disciplinary rules and have imposed an additional ban - meaning he will be absent for Real's next Champions League fixture.

Carvajal's third yellow card in the competition this season meant that he was suspended for Madrid's final Group H game against Borussia Dortmund, which they won 3-2, but UEFA has made a decision to ban the player for a further match.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (HPE): How Do the Books Stack Up?
CCI is relatively high when prices are much higher than average, and relatively low when prices are much lower than the average. A value of 50-75 would identify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would lead to an extremely strong trend.

It's not the first time that Real have found themselves in trouble for a similar offence.

This is not the first time a Madrid player has had to undergo such a sanction, it would be recalled that Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos also did same against Ajax in a game played at the ArenA in Amsterdam as it was suspected to be masterminded by the then coach José Mourinho.

Dani Carvajal has been handed a retrospective one-game ban in the Champions League for a dodgy infringement against APOEL Nicosia in November.
