Sergio Ramos will play in Real Madrid's next Champions League match after all.
After fears he could be suspended for the semi-finals for appearing to violate a touchline ban Wednesday against Juventus, UEFA informed Real Madrid the centre-back will, in fact, be eligible to play in the team's first leg against Bayern Munich on April 25, director Emilio Butragueno told ESPN FC's Dermot Corrigan.
"UEFA have told us there is no risk of a ban as there is not reason for one," Butragueno said.
Ramos had to watch Madrid's 3-1 defeat to Juventus from the stands due to yellow-card accumulation, having received his third booking of the competition in the opening leg in Turin. He was handed an immediate touchline ban for the second leg, but was reportedly seen in the tunnel having a discussion with Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, instigating concerns he could be handed another one-match suspension.
Bayern will host Madrid in the first leg, with the reverse fixture to be played May 1 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
