Cristiano Ronaldo’s ban lifted after appeal

Cristiano Ronaldo’s one-match ban has been rescinded following a successful appeal by Real Madrid.

Initial reports suggested that the club would not bother appealing the card for simulation during the game against Rayo Vallecano, despite manager Carlo Ancelotti calling it “unbelievable”.

However, Real did eventually decide to appeal, and the LFP Competition Committee has rescinded the card – and with it, the one-match ban the Portuguese had picked up for collecting his fifth yellow card. Ronaldo will now be available to face Eibar this weekend.
