Cristiano Ronaldo will miss the Spanish Super Cup second leg against Barcelona after the RFEF turned down Real Madrid's attempt to overturn his five-game ban.
Ronaldo was shown a second yellow card and subsequently a red card in Madrid's 3 - 1 first-leg win at the Camp Nou on Sunday, August 13.
After he was sent off, the Portugal captain pushed the official and hewas punished with a four game ban including one for his red card.
ESPN report that Madrid submitted a defence of the player's behaviour to La Liga's Appeals Committee, who discussed the case at lunchtime on Wednesday.
The appeal has been rejected and Ronaldo will not be able to face Barca in Wednesday's second leg.
