Ronaldo wins yellow card appeal

Ronaldo wins yellow card appeal

Cristiano Ronaldo will be eligible to play in Real Madrid's Liga match against Eibar on Saturday after the appeal against his midweek booking was successful.

The Portuguese star was booked for simulation during the 2-0 win at Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday night but replays showed Madrid should have had a penalty.

Madrid decided to appeal the decision, something helped by a knock to Gareth Bale that will keep him out of this weekend's match. James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos will also miss out through suspension.

That appeal was successful today and Ronaldo will line-up against the Basque side at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday afternoon.
