A report claims that Real Madrid are preparing to appeal Cristiano Ronaldo's three-match suspension.

Real Madrid are reportedly preparing to appeal Cristiano Ronaldo's three-match suspension.

The Spanish Football Association handed the three-game ban to Ronaldo on Wednesday after the Portuguese saw red in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao at San Mames.

However, according to AS, the Spanish outfit have expressed their "unhappiness", "indignation" and "surprise" at the decision and are therefore preparing to launch an appeal.

As it stands, the 29-year-old will miss league games against Villarreal, Getafe and Elche, but will be available for both legs of the Copa del Rey semi-final against Atletico Madrid.
