Real fail to get Ronaldo ban lifted
Ronaldo was given a straight red card last weekend after breaking Malaga defender Patrick Mtiliga's nose with a flailing arm as the two tussled for a ball. He will miss the La Liga trip to play Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday.
The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) handed out a two-match ban earlier in the week and rejected Real's appeal. Real have now gone to the CEDD, who will study their appeal over the coming days, the club said.
