- Sergio Ramos got his fourth Champions League red card against Man City
- The red card against the Citizens was his 26th ever in his career
- Ramos will miss the return leg clash at the Etihad stadium
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has set an unwanted Champions League record after receiving his fourth ever red card against Manchester City on Wednesday night, February 26.
Sergio Ramos was sent off after he fouled Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus in which the referee had no other choice than to bring out the red card.
It was a bad night for the Spaniard as Sergio Ramos has now gotten four red card so far in his career in the Champions League with Real Madrid and 26 in total.
The Spain international has now equaled Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edgar Davids as the three players who have received four red cards in Champions League history.
AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic got four Champions League red card while playing for Inter Milan, Paris-Saint-Germain and Juventus.
Edgar Davids on the other hand got all his career Champions League red cards while playing for current Italian champions Juventus.
The defeat was a big blow for Zinedine Zidane who was given the mandate to return the Champions League title to the Bernabeu.
It was a bad one also for Sergio Ramos who has won the Champions League title four times before and he is dreaming of winning it again for the fifth time.
But his dream this season may not come true as Real Madrid will have to win at the Etihad stadium against Manchester City with Sergio Ramos set to miss the encounter.
And should Real Madrid get dumped out of the Champions League, then they will have to focus on their race with Barcelona on who wins the La Liga title for this season.
