They go on to point out the inconsistency in cards received by Gerard Piqué and Sergio Ramos. Gerard Piqué has committed 30 fouls and has received 14 cards, while Sergio Ramos has committed 46 fouls and received 8 cards.

FC Barcelona have received 6 penalties in their favor and 7 given against them, while Real Madrid have had 7 in their favor and 2 against them. This season, FC Barcelona have accumulated 83 yellow card cautions, while Real Madrid have accumulated 61. Finally, since the restart, FC Barcelona’s players have received 18 yellow cards in total while Real Madrid’s players have been given 8 in total.
