What are the rules for getting a yellow card in the UEFA Champions League? How do suspensions work in the knockout rounds of 2024?

There aren’t many games in club football with more at stake than a UEFA Champions League quarterfinal that takes place over two legs.

Real Madrid, who has won the Champions League 14 times, will play Bayern Munich this season. Paris Saint-Germain, who is still trying to win their first title, will play Borussia Dortmund, who plays in the Bundesliga with Bayern.

Ronald Araujo was sent off for Xavi’s team in the semifinal match between PSG and Barcelona, which ended in a decisive win for PSG. In the semifinals, there is a good chance that players will give up or lose their cool, and the refs and their teams of officials will have four tough nights.
But what are the rules for suspensions in UEFA competitions? What is the risk for players who helped their team get to the Wembley final but now have to sit on the bench and watch?

How many yellow cards do you need to be suspended from the UEFA Champions League?

For many people around the world, including some groups of English football fans, the thought of getting a yellow card makes them think of one man. Hey, Paul Gascoigne.

England’s new star player did a lot to help Bobby Robson’s Three Lions get to the World Cup quarterfinals in 1990, where they played West Germany and went to extra time. With the score tied at 1, Gascoigne lunged at Thomas Berthold late in the game. He got a yellow card, which means he can’t play in the final if his team makes it. Gazza began to cry, and by the time England lost on penalties, the tears were coming again.

In the Champions League, players are banned for one game after getting three yellow cards that don’t lead to a red card. For instance, if a player gets sent off for two bookable crimes and then gets a yellow card in the next game, this will not lead to another ban.

If a player gets another odd-numbered booking after the third, they will be suspended for one match. However, it is likely that a player’s boss will tell them to calm down and behave themselves before they get five, seven, or nine cautions in the same Champions League season.

Are yellow cards “wiped” after the group stage of the UEFA Champions League?

It’s usual for competitions to let players forget about yellow card suspensions so that the threat of a ban doesn’t hang over them for too long.

After the group stage, there is no fresh start, though, and players who get booked during the round-robin part may have trouble in later rounds.

Because of this, Real Madrid will not have their experienced right back Dani Carvajal for the first match against Bayern because he got his third yellow card of the competition in the 1-1 draw against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. When Auerelin Tchouameni got his third yellow card in the Champions League at the Santiago Bernabeu, he had to sit out that game.

Munich, Paris, and Dortmund are all fine and don’t have to worry about suspensions.

How can a person not be able to play in the UEFA Champions League final?

During the second legs of their teams’ semifinal wins, Ousmane Dembele, Lucas Hernandez, Milan Skriniar, Manuel Ugarte, Vitinho, Leon Goretzka, Sasha Boye, Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, Vinicius Jr., Emre Can, Mats Hummels, and Ian Maatsen all stayed on the right side of the rules.

They’ll be in good shape going into the semifinals because the yellow card totals are wiped clean after the quarters.

To put it simply, this means that no one will do a Gazza and get booked, which would keep them out of the final. You can’t be banned from the Champions League final unless you get a straight red card in the first leg or are sent off in the second leg of the semifinal, and the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body thinks that player should get a harsher sentence than a one-game ban.
