It meant a ban for the second leg in the Bernabeu but would have cleared Ramos to play in the quarter-final first leg.

In the mixed zone after the match, Ramos boasted: “The truth is that, seeing the result, it’s something I had in mind.

“It’s not that I am underestimating the opponent but sometimes in football you have to make decisions and that’s what I decided.”

Within minutes, Ramos seemed to realise he had admitted to a breach of Uefa regulations which state that players deliberately picking up cards to serve bans in “dead” matches will serve a two-match suspension.

On social media, Ramos claimed: “I did not force the card.”

But the back-tracking came too late with Uefa launching an investigation less than 24 hours after the game.

And Uefa have confirmed Ramos had been charged with “receiving a yellow card on purpose” with the case heard by the control and disciplinary body in Nyon on Thursday.

Ramos has featured 37 times for Los Blancos this season – chipping in with a staggering 11 goals in all competitions.
