Real Madrid already know the sanction that Fede Valverde will face after his sending off against Atletico Madrid. The Uruguayan midfielder will miss out on only one game, against Sevilla.

Fede Valverde committed a brutal foul from behind on Alvaro Morata in order to stop the striker going one-on-one with Courtois. He saved the goal, and ultimately the title, but took a red card for his actions.

This Wednesday, Competicion made the Uruguayan footballer's sanction official. The Real Madrid player will only miss out on one game, against Sevilla, a one game ban.

There were many people that complaint about Fede Valverde's challenge, therefore, it seemed like he would get more than a one match ban. However, the statement in the referee's report made the action clear.

"Knocking down an opponent and thus preventing a clear chance to score," Sanchez Martinez stated about Valverde's sending off. He was the referee in the SuperCup final.

In this way, Zinedine Zidane cannot rely on Valverde for the game against Sevilla at the Santiago Bernabeu. The Uruguayan, moreover, will join Sergio Ramos who was injured in the final, but who scored the winning penalty.
