Real Madrid 1 – Juventus 3
Would Juventus have scored three goals at Real Madrid had Sergio Ramos been playing for Los Blancos?
Ramos was suspended for Wednesday’s thrilling Champions League match at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Spanish centre-half, however, did his best to influence the game.
While Ramos watched the majority of the Juve game from the stands, in the final minutes of the game he ‘did a Cristiano Ronaldo’.
Recalling how Ronaldo behaved on the sidelined in the Euro 2016 final, Ramos emerged on the sidelines for Madrid in the final stages of the game.
Indeed, Ramos acted like a Real Madrid coach as he barked orders and encouraged his team mates as they face a shock exit.
Sergio Ramos faces a Champions League ban
Yet, whole many Madridistas may have enjoyed Ramos getting excited on the touchline, the defender may have made a huge mistake.
Ramos is believed to have breached UEFA suspension rules by getting involved on the sidelines.
If found guilty, Sergio Ramos could be banned for the first leg of the Champions League semifinal.
Ramos will get a match ban and miss the first leg of the semis for watching some of the game in the tunnel being suspended. Nobody from the club told him he couldn't do that https://t.co/vuhScNzQ8Y
