Barcelona star Lewandowski hit with three-match ban after red card vs Osasuna

Robert Lewandowski has been given a three-match ban after being sent off for Barcelona during their win over Osasuna in La Liga.

Tensions boiled over in Barcelona's eventual 2-1 victory away to Osasuna last week, with Lewandowski given a red card after 30 minutes and Gerard Pique - who was on the bench for his final appearance before retirement - also being sent off for badgering officials on the cusp of half-time. Lewandowski has been given a three-match ban, while Pique has received an even bigger four-match ban, despite the fact he has now departed Camp Nou.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) state that Lewandowski's two yellow cards constitute a one-game suspension, while the extra two games come as a result of his attitude towards officials, as he appeared to make a gesture towards them.

Pique, meanwhile, was punished for ''insults, verbal offenses and insulting attitudes'', according to article 99.
