The Mexican player will serve his second suspension since his return from the FIFA International break with the Mexican national team, where he was a starter in all three matches for ‘El Tri’.

Why was Raúl suspended for 2 games?

The Premier League regulations state that a red card is a 2-match suspension, so Raúl has not played a match for Wolves since March 18, when they were defeated by Leeds. In that match, he played 53 minutes. 

This season, Jiménez has not been called up in 4 matches, in addition to being a substitute in 3 of the 28 matches he has been called up for.

The Mexican has 6 goals in the Premier League this season and has not scored since March 10 in the 4-0 win over Watford.
