In the Spanish competition (La Liga), a player will be suspended after collecting five yellow cards. What happens if this player collects his fifth yellow card of a season, but in a cup match (Copa del Rey)? Will he also get suspended, or are these bookings counted separately? Is there any relationship between the different competitions regarding yellow cards?
La Liga and the Copa Del Rey are considered separate competitions, Ronaldo recently picked up a 3 game ban in La Liga against Bilbao but was able to play (and score) in the semi finals against Atl. Madrid.
