Sergio Ramos: Red alert

Sergio Ramos lived yesterday two situations very common for him with Real Madrid. The defender scored the second goal of his team and the 40th of his career, at the Bernabeu Stadium. Minutes later, took the road to the shower after receiving two yellow cards in less than a minute. Another situation is not new for him at Madrid.

Sergio Ramos gets sent-off

Since he joined the white team in 2005, Sergio Ramos has ended matches prematurely 16 times, 12 of them in the Spanish League. No Madrid player has been sent off more times in league games than the Andalusian defender. Fernando Hierro saw 10 red cards, but played 439 games in the Spanish Championship. Ramos played his match 250 yesterday. Moreover, in the remaining 91 games in other competitions, he has received four more red cards: two in the Champions League and two in the Copa del Rey. The last, against Celta, with a four games penalty (five, due to the second yellow) for calling "scoundrels" to the referee.

Sergio Ramos has 111 yellow cards and 12 red in the First Spanish Division, allowing him to draw with Marchena, Carboni and Luccin as the ninth player who has seen more red cards in the history of the Spanish League. Interestingly, Sergio Ramos has never been sent off in a match of the Spanish national team, with which has played 99 international macthes.

Ramos' red card against Rayo is the seventh received by Real Madrid players in the 12 games played in 2013. The white team has played in inferiority against Rayo Vallecano (Ramos), Sevilla (Higuain), Valencia (Di Maria and Coentrao), Osasuna (Kaka), Celta (Ramos) and Real Sociedad (Adan). A dangerous routine.
