Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is hoping the club will appeal his red card against Manchester City to allow the centre-back to play in the Champions League last-16, second leg on March 17.
Ramos was sent off towards the end of Los Blancos’ 2-1 defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu last week after bringing down Gabriel Jesus on the edge of the area.
Speaking after Madrid’s 2-0 win over Barcelona, the defender said: “For me, it was a slight touch.
“The possibility of appealing is there. For me, definitely. Any option of me playing that match, Madrid will look at and I will apply pressure.
The criteria is relative. Some say yes and others say no. That’s football and you can’t go back. There’s still a wonderful game to come.”
Having conceded two goals against City, Madrid will need to score at least twice at the Etihad to make it to the quarter-finals.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
