Lionel Messi sees red as Barcelona lose Supercopa final to Bilbao

Messi red card

Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi, was sent off in the dying stages as Barcelona lost 3-2 to Athletic Bilbao in the Supercopa final in Seville.

With the scores level going into extra time, Athletic’s Inaki Williams put his side into the lead with a stunning strike in the 93rd minute.

VAR then picked up Messi taking a swipe at Asier Villalibre off the ball as they collided.

And after consulting with the monitor the referee decided to give the six-time Ballon d’Or winner his marching orders.

It is only the third time in his career Messi has been sent off and the first time for Barcelona.
