Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, has equalled another record that he would have loved to avoid as he was handed his 18th La Liga red card.
Sergio Ramos was issued his second card in the game in Real Madrid’s game against Deportivo La Coruna which they won 3-0 on Sunday.
This is one record that Sergio Ramos would have loved to avoid given the fact that it came very late in the game when his team had already won.
Ramos is known for his hard playing style which has not put him in the good books of referees in the league.
The second yellow card was issued to Ramos after he used his arms in an aerial battle with Borja Valle.
Matches The Record Of Zaragoza’s Duo
His latest marching orders mean he is now at par with Xavi Aguado and Pablo Alfaro, both former players at Real Zaragoza who also have 18 red cards each.
Real Madrid had a great game as they started their defence of the La Liga title with goals from Gareth Bale, Casemiro and Toni Kross giving Zidane the perfect start even though Ronaldo was absent due to suspension.
The team also set another milestone as Casemiro’s goal came after 44 passes were made by the Madrid team which is a record in the league since 2006.
