The Spain international was given his marching orders in the 72nd minute of the fixture after picking up a second yellow card before venting his feelings at the match officials as he left the pitch.

The Spanish Football Federation announced on Thursday that Ramos had been given a one-match ban for his dismissal and a further four-match suspension due to article 94 of the RFEF's disciplinary code, which relates to "insults, verbal offences and abusive attitudes" towards officials.

Madrid won the match 4-0 to progress through to the quarter-finals 5-2 on aggregate.
