The Spanish FA will meet on Wednesday to determine the length of Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo's domestic ban.

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo will discover the length of his domestic ban when the Spanish FA meet on Wednesday.

The Portuguese captain was handed a straight red card in the latter stages of Madrid's 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao at the weekend after raising his hands to Carlos Gurpegi in an off-the-ball incident.

As it stands, Ronaldo will only miss the league clash with Villarreal at the weekend, but under the RFEF's official rules, a ban in the excess of three games could also be awarded depending on how the 28-year-old's conduct is viewed.

The ban will not cover Wednesday's Copa del Rey semi-final first leg against Atletico Madrid, but the second leg could be included in any possible suspension.

Ronaldo has scored 32 goals this season.
