2010 11 champions league
There is nothing more important in European football than securing a place to play in the Champions League and Getafe, who currently find themselves sitting pretty in fourth place in LaLiga Santander, will be doing everything in their power to stay there and ensure that they will compete in next season's competition. Having said that, there are still 12 games to go and 36 points to play for, which means anything can happen between now and the end of the season.

Real Madrid pass three crucial tests with flying colours Solari, the head coach... for 2020 The yellow card that Sergio Ramos admitted he earned on purpose during the game against Ajax on Wednesday night could see him receive a similar fine to the one he was hit with during the 2010/11 Champions League against the same opposition. On that occasion, UEFA sanctioned Real Madrid with a 100,000 euro fine and coach Jose Mourinho was hit in the pocket to the tune of 30,000 euros for engineering a chain of messages which resulted in Jerzy Dudek telling Iker Casillas to inform Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso that they should pick up a booking. Those cards allowed them to clear their disciplinary records for the next stage of the competition. The four players involved didn't receive the severity of punishment that their coach did but were fined, with Ramos and Alonso hit with 20,000 euro fines, Casillas handed a 10,000 euro fine and Dudek receiving a 5,000 euro punishment. Mourinho, who was … [Read more...] about Ramos fined 20,000 euros for deliberately getting booked against Ajax in 2010
