Champions League

Sergio Ramos grabs an unwanted Champions League record against PSG

Real Madrid defeated PSG 1-2 at Parc Des Princess and they advance to the Quarter Finals of the Champions League. The Spanish side came to Paris on the back of a 3-1 win at the Bernabeu and the reigning European Champions did not give much of a chance to PSG in the return leg either.

Despite the PSG Ultras doing their best to create an uneasy atmosphere for the Whites, Cristiano Ronaldo gave the lead to the European Champions. PSG got back into the game thanks to a lucky goal by Cavani but any hopes of a miraculous comeback were turned down as Casemiro scored the second to give a 1-2 win to Real Madrid.

Real Madrid defenders didn’t put a foot wrong for the whole 90 minutes but their Captain Sergio Ramos still got his name in the record books for an unwanted reason.

Ramos was level with former Man United midfielder Paul Scholes in terms of most cards received. However, his yellow card for the foul on Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore made him the most dirtiest player in the Champions League history.

Sergio Ramos has now received a total of 37 cards in the Champions League with two second bookings to his name and also one straight red.

Ramos also has received the most cards in La Liga history too and the Madrid Captain has received 19 reds in the league.

None the less, Real Madrid completed an impressive win and now the Spanish giants are in line to complete a treble of Champions League having won it twice in the last two years.
