UEFA bans Dani Carvajal for intentionally earning yellow card
From ESPN - December 7, 2017

Dani Carvajal will miss the first leg of Real Madrid's Champions League round of 16 tie after being suspended by UEFA for deliberately seeking a yellow card.

European bosses have handed Spanish defender Carvajal a two-match ban following his booking in the final minute of the 6-0 win over Apoel Nicosia on Nov. 21.

He was charged by UEFA with "receiving a yellow card on purpose." The booking was imposed for wasting time when taking a throw-in.
