The Spanish Super Cup encounter between Barcelona and Real Madrid was certainly littered with talking points.

The first leg in the Nou Camp was undoubtedly the most controversial with two major incidents inciting yet more rivalry between the two famous foes.

Barca's Luis Suarez essentially dived for a penalty after barely being brushed by Keylor Navas, while Los Blancos superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off for diving, following an initial yellow card for taking his shirt off in celebration.

However, the dismissal was far from the last of it with the Portuguese forward pushing the official after his decision, leading to him picking up a five-game ban.

The punishment was appealed by the player and Real but, on Tuesday evening, it was revealed the sanction had been upheld at the very last stage.

Now, Ronaldo will miss the start of the campaign, allowing the likes of Gareth Bale, Isco, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vasquez to prove their worth in Zinedine Zidane's exceptional side.

Naturally, the serial goal scorer was not happy with the decision and took to Instagram to voice his discontent over the final decision.


The translated version reads: "This is an incomprehensible decision. From unrighteousness to unrighteousness, they will never overthrow me. And as always I will come back stronger. Thank you to all who have supported me."

Yeah, he is not happy about the decision, although, it does prove that no player can lay their hands on the officials.

However, on Twitter, a video did surface showing Ronaldo's arch nemesis Lionel Messi pushing an official back in 2009 and yet he received no punishment.
