Madrid persist with Ramos appeal

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed the club has appealed against the red card given to Sergio Ramos in the 4-3 defeat to Barcelona.

Real Madrid are to ask the Spanish Sports Ministry to free Sergio Ramos to play in Wednesday's La Liga game at Sevilla, after the La Liga authorities upheld his suspension for the game.

Train: Damaging defeat for Madrid
Ronaldo, Ramos complaints dismissed

Ramos was sent off for a professional foul during Madrid’s 4-3 defeat to Barcelona last Sunday, and then subsequently -- along with teammate Cristiano Ronaldo -- accused referee Alberto Undiano Mallenco of having been biased against his side.

On Tuesday, La Liga’s disciplinary committee turned down Madrid’s appeal against the red card, and handed Ramos the customary one-game ban, but he nevertheless travelled with his teammates to the Andalusian capital ahead of the game in the hope of being able to play.

However, at Wednesday lunchtime La Liga’s appeals committee turned down Madrid’s attempt to overturn the one game suspension. 

AS reports that the Bernabeu club will now ask the Spanish government’s Tribunal Administrativo del Deporte (TAD) -- which would normally intervene in such matters -- to order La Liga’s authorities to suspend the matter for now, allowing Ramos to take the field against his old club, and for the matter to be dealt with more slowly.

Tuesday's disciplinary committee verdict had backed Undiano Mallenco’s decision that Ramos had fouled Neymar when the Barca attacker was clear through on goal, saying in a statement: “The evidence shows an opponent with a clear chance to score was impeded.”

Madrid maintain that Ramos did not touch Neymar and do not believe it was a clear goalscoring opportunity as Marcelo was also present, AS reports.

Sevilla coach Unai Emery told his prematch news conference that he hoped the controversy Madrid’s complaints have created will not affect referee Jose Luiz Gonzalez Gonzalez in Wednesday’s game.

“All teams can complain after a game -- the difference here is that the players making them are on the level of Ramos and Cristiano,” Emery said. “I do not believe their words should condition the refereeing. I hope it will be like that. The referees have a very difficult role, but they are prepared well enough.”

Meanwhile, Spain’s referees' committee has asked for both Ramos and Ronaldo to be punished for the accusations made against Undiano Mallenco after Sunday’s game.

Marca reports that a hearing on that could take place on Friday, and any punishments handed out would likely be fines, not game bans.
