Sergio Ramos was dramatically sent off as Real Madrid recorded a 3-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna in their opening La Liga game.

Ramos received his marching orders in injury time after he jumped up using his elbow.

Replays showed he clearly raised his hands towards the Switzerland international.

Both players were caught up in the melee as a number of players got involved after Schar appeared to put his head in after squaring up to Ramos.

The home fans were calling for the Spanish star to be sent-off but referee Jose Luis Gonzalez appeared to miss the incident as he only brandished a yellow card to both players.
