Real Madrid will be missing Coentrao and Di María for next week's semi-final clash with Barcelona after both were sent off in the cup tie against Valencia. The Portuguese full back was the first to go for a second bookable offence, and the Argentinian midfielder followed him down the tunnel later on after a back-kick at Joao Pereira. Madrid's hot-tempered assistant coach Rui Faria will also be banned for two games (again) after he wasreported by referee Pérez Lasa for verbal abuse in the tunnel after the final whistle. According to Pérez, Faria told him several times that he had no shame, as well as "other expressions which I could not understand!" Anyone got a Portuguese phrase book? Zaragoza also had two players sent off in their quarter final tie with Sevilla, new signing José Fernández for a "kung-fu" kick at Reyes, and youngster Fran González for a second booking. They will serve out their one match bans in the first cup tie next season, together with team-mate Sapunaru, as well as Weligton (Málaga) and Víctor Ruíz (Valencia), who were all shown their third yellow cards of the competition. Raúl García (Atlético) also picked up a third booking, and in his case he will sit out next week's semi against Sevilla.

Sapunaru races miles clear at the top of our chart though as he was sent off in Saturday's match at Espanyol. The Romanian full back was sent for an early bath for a second bookable offence late on, although Javi López had already started to run the water for him as he was sent off for the same reason a few minutes before. There were no less than nine red cards this weekend though, including one each for Celta's Paco Herrera and Osasuna's Mendilibar for protesting. Both coaches were given two match suspensions, and they will be able to have a good chat in the stands next weekend as their two teams play each other! Two of Deportivo's new signings didn't make it through the 90 minutes either, Silvio picking up a second caution early in the second half of the fixture against Valencia, and Paulo Assuncao following him for an elbow on Nelson Valdez just before the final whistle. Celta's Augusto Fernández was the first player sent off this weekend after he was shown two yellow cards in the first match on Saturday against Real Sociedad, and Osasuna's Arribas had to abandon the pitch at the Nou Camp with less than half an hour gone when he was booked for a second time after giving away a penalty for hands. And finally Málaga's Demichelis was shown a straight red card for a crunching tackle on Mallorca's Javi Márquez, luckily for him too late to stop his side from taking the three points. All will miss the next round of matches, together with another eleven players who completed the five yellow card cycle, Espanyol's Víctor Sánchez who picked up his tenth booking, and Filipe Luis (Atlético), Krohn-Dehli (Celta), Lopo and Miguel Torres (Getafe), Diakhaté (Granada), Pina (Mallorca), Piti (Rayo), Özil (Real Madrid), and De la Bella and Bergara (Real Sociedad), who were all given their fifth.
