Barcelona appeal against Messi’s two-game ban thrown out

Barcelona’s appeal against the two-match ban slammed on captain Lionel Messi for his red card in the Spanish Super Cup final, has been rejected.

It means Messi will miss out on Sunday’s game away at Elche in LaLiga.

The 33-year-old served the first match of his suspension as the Catalans won 2-0 in extra time away to Cornella in the Copa del Rey on Thursday.

Messi was sent off late in extra time in Sunday’s Super Cup final in Seville against Athletic Bilbao, which Barcelona lost 3-2.

It was the first red card of his Barcelona career, on his 753rd appearance, for lashing out at Athletic’s Asier Villalibre.
