Poland striker, Lewandowski banned for three games

Poland and Barcelona striker, Robert Lewandowski, has been banned for three Barca games after receiving a red card in their LaLiga 2-1 victory against Osasuna last week.

Lewandowski, who is currently with Poland at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, was shown two yellow cards during the encounter.

His second yellow card against Osasuna was because he elbowed David Garcia’s face.

The 34-year-old will now miss Barcelona’s La Liga games against Espanyol, Atletico Madrid and Getafe after returning from the World Cup in Qatar.

Lewandowski’s teammate Gerard Pique was given a four-game ban after insulting the referee at half-time following that decision.

However, Pique retired from football after that game.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have said they will appeal against Lewandowski’s ban, which the Spanish football association awarded because of a gesture showing a “contemptuous attitude towards the referees”.
