Sergio Ramos could face fresh Champions League ban after tunnel exchange

Sergio Ramos could face fresh Champions League ban after tunnel exchange

They will be joined by either Juventus or Real Madrid and one of either Bayern Munich and Sevilla.

Ramos was caught by TV cameras standing in the tunnel near the dugouts during those frantic closing minutes at the Bernabeu, even having a heated exchange with Juve coach Max Allegri.

"In a one-off game like the final in Kiev, I definitely think Liverpool can beat Real but, over two legs, it will be a lot harder and I hope they get someone else in the draw".

The semi-final draw takes place at midday on Friday April 13.

There is precedent too, with UEFA stinging Xabi Alonso (who was playing for Real at the time) for encroaching onto the pitch during the 2014 Champions League final against Atletico Madrid by banning him from the subsequent Super Cup.

Real Madrid had control of the quarter-final tie after a 0-3 victory in the first leg in Turin.

According to UEFA regulations, a player who is ineligible for the match can not be seen participating in any manner.

Who is in the Champions League semi-final?

The Reds booked their place in the last four of Europe's elite club competition by beating Manchester City 2-1 on Tuesday night to complete a 5-1 aggregate success.

Referee Michael Oliver's match report is due in today and if Ramos is mentioned he could face suspension for another match. As a result, the Spanish midfielder had been given a one-match ban.

Navas has been in fine form for Madrid of late, but he was badly at fault in the 60th minute when he let a simple ball slip through his hand leaving Blaise Matudi with a simple tap in from close range.
