Ronaldo receives three-match ban

5 February 2014 12:37

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been banned for three La Liga games after his sending off at Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

The Portugal captain was dismissed following an altercation with Bilbao defender Carlos Gurpegui 15 minutes from time as Real were held 1-1 at San Mames.


Ronaldo, who was awarded the FIFA Ballon d'Or last month, was pushed before retaliating by lifting his hands up to the Gurpegui's face.


The Bilbao man theatrically fell to the ground, before Ander Iturraspe got involved and appeared to headbutt Ronaldo, receiving a yellow card for his part.


The ban will see the former Manchester United man miss Liga fixtures against Villarreal, Elche and Getafe before returning in time to face table-toppers Atletico Madrid in the Madrid derby on March 1.


Ronaldo had provided the assist for Jese Rodriguez to open the scoring midway through the second half, before Ibai pulled Bilbao level.


The 29-year-old, who has scored 22 goals in 21 league games for Real this season, is available for his side's Copa del Rey clash against Atleti on Wednesday.
