Lionel Messi handed two-game ban for Supercopa red card





Lionel Messi has been hit with a two-match ban after his red card in the final of the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday..

The captain was sent off towards the end of extra-time after lashing out at Athletic’s Asier Villalibre and was subsequently handed his marching orders after a VAR check.

The RFEF’s Competition Committee has now made a decision on the length of Messi’s suspension which is effective immediately.

Messi will now sit out the Copa del Rey game against Thursday, which he would likely have missed anyway, as well as Sunday’s La Liga trip to Elche.

The enforced rest may not be the worst thing for Messi given he came back from a minor injury against Athletic and ended up playing almost 120 minutes.

Messi could now return against….Athletic. The two teams meet for the third time this month at the Camp Nou in La Liga on January 31.
