Poland and Barcelona striker, Robert Lewandowski, has been banned for three Barca games after receiving a red card in their LaLiga 2-1 victory against Osasuna last week.
His second yellow card against Osasuna was because he elbowed David Garcia’s face.
The 34-year-old will now miss Barcelona’s La Liga games against Espanyol, Atletico Madrid and Getafe after returning from the World Cup in Qatar.
Lewandowski’s teammate Gerard Pique was given a four-game ban after insulting the referee at half-time following that decision.
However, Pique retired from football after that game.
Meanwhile, Barcelona have said they will appeal against Lewandowski’s ban, which the Spanish football association awarded because of a gesture showing a “contemptuous attitude towards the referees”.
