Cristiano Ronaldo yearns for no sanctions for his Los Blancos teammates as the 2017/18 season takes shape.

Currently serving a five-game ban, the 32-year-old winger hopes to return with Los Blancos still in pole position for La Liga success. Cristiano received a second yellow card for alleged diving in the 2017 Supercopa de Espana first leg clash at the Camp Nou.

For Cristiano, being in top form at Real Madrid comes with surviving awful tackles from opponents. Now, Don Balon reports that the superstar has advised his compatriots – especially dazzling midfielders Marco Asensio and Isco Alarcon – to stay wary of similar refereeing actions. Interestingly, the pair have maintained a great disciplinary record this season; the stylish lads have no yellow cards yet in their duties for Los Merengues.

Marco’s rise in performance awarded him a chance in La Roja where he featured against Italy in their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier last Saturday. Isco on the other hand was absolutely sensational in their 3-0 victory over the Azzurri. The 25-year-old attacker recorded a brace in the crucial encounter played at the Santiago Bernabeu.

CR7’s return in the domestic league is expected on September 20 against Real Betis. Meanwhile, he has one fixture on September 13 and that’s Real Madrid’s first 2017/18 Champions League contest as they welcome APOEL Nicosia at home.
