Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski will miss the club’s next three games after a ban was upheld after a failed appeal.
On Wednesday, the Spanish administrative tribunal of sport (TAD) heard the LaLiga giants’ appeal of Lewandowski’s three-game suspension.
And, according to Marca, they’ve decided to stick by their decision. On November 8, Lewandowski was sent off after receiving a second yellow card and then making a gesture during Barcelona’s league game against Osasuna.
However, Barcelona appealed the suspension, and Lewandowski played against Espanyol last weekend.
Xavi Hernandez, the manager, even stated that he expected the Poland striker to be available for Sunday’s game against Atletico Madrid, but he will now have to watch from the stands. Lewandowski has 13 goals in 15 LaLiga appearances.
