Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says Cristiano Ronaldo ‘isn’t happy’ having to serve a three-game suspension for his red card against Athletic Bilbao, while he adds that the club and player are still awaiting the outcome of their appeal.

Ronaldo was sent off for an altercation with Carlos Gurpegui in a 1-1 draw at the San Mames, which forced him to miss the victory over Villarreal last weekend while he will also be unavailable to face Getafe.

The Portugal captain will complete his suspension when Real Madrid face Elche at the Santiago Bernabeu in a week’s time, and Ancelotti says his leading scorer is frustrated at being unable to feature for his club.

"He isn’t happy, because he wants to play every game. He played well against Atletico Madrid, and now has three days off,” Ancelotti told reporters.

"We submitted our appeal on Tuesday and we’re waiting for the [Spanish Sports Disciplinary] Committee’s answer. It’s strange."

Madrid, meanwhile, enter into the encounter with Villarreal needing to secure clinch a win in order to keep the pace with Atletico and Barcelona.

Barca triumphed 6-0 on Saturday to retain their position at the summit of La Liga, while Atletico are level on points with the champions having beaten Real Valladolid. Three points for Madrid will ensure they too move level.
