Cristiano Ronaldo's yellow card will not be appealed

When the referee missed the big penalty call on Cristiano Ronaldo and decided to book the Portuguese player for diving, it was easy to take a look at the replay and see that he was brought down by Rayo defender Amaya.

Real Madrid ended up winning the game, but Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Los Blancos' next match against Eibar at the Santiago Bernabéu. However, Real Madrid sources told Managing Madrid that they don't know if they will appeal the yellow card or not.

It's easy to interpret that the club has no intention of appealing this decision. Real Madrid have a tough schedule ahead and the home match against Eibar could be the perfect one for Ronaldo to miss. Toni Kroos and James will also miss the game, so all these three players will be fresh for Tuesday's Champions League match against Atlético de Madrid.
