MADRID, Spain -- Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo will miss his team's next Spanish league game at Osasuna serving a one-game ban.

Ronaldo picked up his fifth yellow card of the season on Sunday when he fouled Real Sociedad's Carlos Vela from behind, meaning that he will be suspended for one match.

The Portugal forward scored two goals to secure Madrid's 4-3 win over the Basque side.

Madrid saw Gonzalo Higuain return after a two-month injury layoff, so it is possible that the Argentina striker will fill in for Ronaldo for next week's game at Pamplona.
