JUST IN: Lionel Messi’s Appeal For Red Card Has Been Rejected


Lionel Messi will miss Barcelona’s La Liga clash with Elche on Sunday after the Spanish FA decided to uphold the two-match ban handed to the Argentine following his red card against Athletic Club.

The 33-year-old was dismissed by referee Jesus Gil Manzano in the final moments of extra time of the Supercopa de Espana clash, that Athletic would go on to win 3-2.

It was the first red card of Messi’s club career, with Barca having appealed against he decision to hand their talismanic forward a two-match ban.

That appeal has been unsuccessful, however, and Messi will now serve what is the second of his two-game suspension as the Catalans head to struggling Elche on Sunday.
