With this yellow card Ramos would miss the second leg of the the round of 16, but he would get "clean" to the quarterfinals if his team is classified as it thought at the time of committing the infringement.

UEFA has launched a disciplinary investigation that could rule Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos out of a potential Champions League quarterfinal, first leg after he admitted getting booked on goal in Wednesday's 2-1 win at Ajax Amsterdam.

But in an extraordinary post-match interview, Ramos said he intentionally got booked against Ajax, which breaks UEFA's rules and is punishable with an extra one-match suspension.

While " needy " is probably one of the best written songs on the album , its spacey beat sounds like a rip-off from " sweetener ". The album consists of 12 tracks, with each song highlighting Grande's views on dating, relationships and self-care.

However, following his latest revelations, Uefa could add another match to his ban.

"I am happy because we played with confidence and it wasn't really very easy after the last match the 6-0 loss to Manchester City, " Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri said after the match. "It's not to underestimate the rival, but in football you have to make complicated decisions and I chose to do that".

But Ramos then backtracked on his comments in a post on social media. He asked his captain and fellow teammates, 'Should I look for it?' as well as making a card gesture towards the bench.

Probably not. Many were quick to observe that Ramos, who had been on two bookings heading into the match, knew what he was doing given a suspension now will reduce the risk of missing a match later in the competition - with all bookings wiped following the quarter-final stage.

Real needed help from the video assistant referee (VAR) to cancel out Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico's goal in the first half, before Hakim Ziyech equalised following Karim Benzema's opener.

But first up there is the small matter of Malmo in the Europa League round of 32, and if Chelsea are to get the two-legged tie off to a good start on Thursday they will have to do something they have failed to so far in 2019: win away from home.
