The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) Appeals Committee has rescinded the yellow card shown to defender Danilo in Real Madrid's win over Villarreal earlier this month.

During the first half of Real's 3-0 LaLiga victory at the Bernabéu, the full-back was wrongly cautioned by referee Carlos Clos Gómez for a foul committed by team-mate Casemiro.

Los Blancos lodged a protest against the booking in view of the evident case of mistaken identity, but saw the card initially upheld by the RFEF's Competition Committee.

However, following a renewed challenge by the Spanish capital outfit, the governing body's Appeals Committee has opted to overturn that ruling.
