Gareth Bale has been handed a two-match suspension following his red card in Real Madrid's 3-3 draw with Las Palmas on Wednesday.

The Wales international received a straight red after pushing Jonathan Viera to the ground, having only initially received a booking for a reckless foul on the Las Palmas man.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has now made a decision on the matter and banned Bale for Madrid's next two games.

He will consequently miss Saturday's trip to Eibar and the home game against Betis on March 12.

The former Tottenham star has netted nine goals in 20 appearances in all competitions this season.
