After the game, Ramos surprisingly admitted that the yellow card had been a deliberate ruse to earn a suspension and clear his record ahead of the quarter-finals, telling reporters: "I would lie if I told you that I did not force the card. "It is something I had in mind, it is not to underestimate Ajax or think that the tie is already over but I have decided so I can rest in the return, although I will be in the stadium to encourage the team." Sky Sports News has confirmed that UEFA has opened an investigation into Ramos' comments, meaning that he could be slapped with a two-game ban which would see him miss the quarter-final first leg if Real Madrid qualify.👀🤔

Should he wind up at Real, Courtois would no doubt be delighted. "It would be nice, but of course I cannot say much about it," the goalkeeper told VTM Nieuws. "Eden is a top player and also my buddy. If he came here, it would be fun, but he must make his choices. We laugh at the fact that we like to play football together but that is something I do not interfere in," Courtois added.”👀👀🔥🔥
