Real fail to get Ronaldo ban temporarily lifted

Real Madrid's attempt to have Cristiano Ronaldo's two-match ban suspended while they lodged an appeal has failed.

Ronaldo travelled with the Real squad to Deportivo La Coruna, where Los Blancos have not won in 19 seasons, in the hope that he would be able to play but the Spanish Sports Disciplinary Committee have upheld an immediate ban.

Ronaldo was given a straight red card last weekend after breaking Malaga defender Patrick Mtiliga's nose with a flailing arm as the two tussled for a ball.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) handed out a two-match ban earlier in the week and rejected Real's initial appeal.

The decision to uphold the ban means the debate regarding the fairness of the red card will continue to dominate the Spanish press.
