Ronaldo has been given a two-match ban for kicking out at an opponent during last weekend's win over Cordoba, ESPN FC reports.

Ronaldo will be suspended for Saturday's match against Real Sociedad and next Wednesday's match against Sevilla, but he'll be eligible to return Feb. 7 to face Atletico Madrid. Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema will have to handle more of the offensive attack while Ronaldo, who leads La Liga in goals and assists this season, is out.

Ronaldo was sent off with a straight red card in the 82nd minute of Real Madrid's 2-1 win over Cordoba on Saturday.

Ronaldo took three shots in the game, but none landed on goal, and he failed to score a goal or assist on one for the first time in a La Liga game this season. He missed an opportunity for the game-winning penalty due to the red card, which Gareth Bale slotted home to clinch the three points for Los Blancos.

Ronaldo took a game-high seven shots and scored twice during Real Madrid's 3-0 win over Getafe on Sunday.

Ronaldo had gone scoreless in both of his last two La Liga matches, which is hardly something to complain about for most players, but we're not talking about a regular footballer here. He now has 28 goals this season, only three away from his 2013/14 mark. In addition, he leads La Liga with nine assists. Up next is a trip to face Cordoba on Saturday.

Ronaldo won his third-career FIFA Ballon d'Or on Monday, beating out Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer.

Ronaldo won for the second consecutive year thanks to 31 goals in 30 La Liga matches and another 17 goals in Champions League play, the latter of which set a record for the competition. Amazingly, his scoring pace is even better this year, as he has 26 goals in 16 La Liga matches, while also leading the Spanish top division with nine assists.

Ronaldo, who was used as a sub in Wednesday's Copa del Rey match against Atletico Madrid, is in the starting XI for Saturday's La Liga match against Espanyol.

Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot in the 14th minute of Real Madrid's 2-1 loss to Valencia on Sunday, ending their 22-game win streak.

Ronaldo failed to score during Madrid's two Club World Cup matches, but he has now found the back of the net 26 times in 15 La Liga matches this season, plus another five in Champions League play. His 26 league goals put him 11 ahead of Lionel Messi, who will play later Sunday.
