- Real Madrid thrashed Apoel Nicosia in their Champions League tie on Tuesday
- Dani Carvajal received a yellow card in the 90th minute for time wasting
- The yellow means the defender’s disciplinary slate clean for the knockout stage
Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal has been charged by UEFA for getting booked on purpose during their 6-0 win at Apoel Nicosia in Champions League Group H on Tuesday to wipe his disciplinary slate clean for the knockout stage.
The right back was shown a yellow card in the 90th minute for time wasting when taking a throw in.
It was his third booking of the group stage which means he is banned for the final group game at home to Borussia Dortmund on December 6.

The yellow card meant holders Madrid, already guaranteed to finish second behind Tottenham Hotspur and progress to the last 16, would have Carvajal available for the knockout rounds of the competition without any yellow cards hanging over him.
UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary body will deal with the case on December 7 and could suspend Spaniard Carvajal for an additional two matches.
Carvajal has featured three times in the Champions League for Real so far this season.
