Cristiano Ronaldo was handed a five - match ban
on Monday for pushing a referee after being
controversially sent- off in Real Madrid ’ s 3 - 1
Spanish Super Cup, first leg win at Barcelona .
Here, AFP sports takes a look at all of the
World Player of the Year ’ s 10 career dismissals .

1 . Saturday, May 15 , 2004, Aston Villa 0 Manchester
United 2
Ronaldo scored in United ’ s 2 - 0 win away to
Aston Villa on the final day of the season , but
was booked twice for diving and time wasting
late on .
His first booking was eventually rescinded
meaning he didn ’ t have to serve a suspension .

2 . Saturday, January 14 , 2006 , Manchester City 3
Manchester United 1
The Portuguese was shown a straight red card
for a late challenge on former United favourite
Andy Cole as the Red Devils went on to lose the
Manchester derby 3 - 1.

3 . Wednesday , August 15 , 2007, Portsmouth 1
Manchester United 1
A straight red card and three- match ban was
again dished out to Ronaldo for an apparent
headbutt on Portsmouth midfielder Richard
Hughes in a 1 - 1 draw at Fratton Park .

4 . Sunday, November 30 , 2008 , Manchester City 0
Manchester United 1
Ronaldo saw red in a Manchester derby once
more , this time for two bookable offences after
a trip on Shaun Wright- Phillips and then an
inexplicable handball .

5 . December 5 , 2009 , Real Madrid 4 Almeria 2
A first red card in La Liga came in Ronaldo ’ s
debut season for two petulant late bookings
coming after he had missed a penalty and also
scored Los Blancos ’ fourth goal in a 4- 2 win .

6 . January 24 , 2010 , Real Madrid 2 Malaga 0
Just a month later Ronaldo doubled his count of
red cards at the Bernabeu when he elbowed
Malaga midfielder Patrick Mtiliga in the face as
he tried to escape the Dane ’ s clutches . Earlier,
the Portuguese had scored both Madrid’ s goals
in a 2 - 0 win .

7 . May 17 , 2013 , Real Madrid 1 Atletico Madrid 2
On a disastrous night for Real as they lost a
Madrid derby for the first time in 14 years ,
Ronaldo kicked out at Atletico captain Gabi in
the final few minutes and was shown a straight
red .

8 . February 2 , 2014, Athletic Bilbao 1 Real Madrid 1
Ronaldo was given a three - game ban after
clashing with Athletic defender Carlos Gurpegi
and then showing his disagreement with the
referee when he was shown a straight red card
as he left the field .

9 . January 24 , 2015 , Cordoba 1 Real Madrid 2
Arguably his most violent discretion as he
kicked out at Cordoba defender Edimar .

10 . August 13 , 2017 , Barcelona 1 Real Madrid 3
Ronaldo packed plenty of action in a 24 - minute
appearance as a second - half substitute as he
smashed into the top corner to give Madrid a
2 - 1 lead .

However , his decision to celebrate by removing
his shirt to flex his muscles proved costly as he
was booked and just two minutes later saw a
second yellow card for diving in the referee’ s
eyes in an attempt to win a penalty .
