The Competition Committee of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) included this Wednesday Sergio Busquetsamong those sanctioned for the second day of the League, so the captain of the FC Barcelona will not be able to line up next Sunday at the Reale Arena against the Real society (22 hours), in compliance with article 120 of the RFEF Disciplinary Code.
It had been ten years since the Barça midfielder had not been sent off, an experience he lived through for the second time in his career last Saturday at the League premiere, in the final stretch of the game that Barça drew goalless at the Camp Nou against Rayo Valllecano . Busquets saw the first yellow card in the 74th minute and the second already in added time, which leads to a one-game suspension.
The Barcelona club can resort now to the Appeal Committee to avoid losing a referential player for the coach Xavi Hernandez. The first warning to Busquets, as collected in the arbitration record Hernandez Hernandez, was for holding an adversary preventing his advance. The second yellow card was shown to him for hitting, at the discretion of the referee, recklessly with his arm to an opponent in the dispute for the ball.
