- The Brazilian was expelled against Atlético de Madrid and the Barça club announced that they will appeal to the Appeals Committee the punishment of two games without playing
Dani Alves was banned for two games this Wednesday by the Competition Committee for his expulsion against Atlético de Madrid , after the Brazilian stepped on Carrasco from behind , and Barça announced that it will present an appeal to the Appeals Committee to prevent the veteran winger misses the league games against Espanyol and Valencia.
This was made public by Barça in a statement on their social networks, in which they confirmed that “FC Barcelona will present an appeal to the Appeals Committee after the two-game ban imposed on the player Dani Alves by the Competition Committee, for the card red that he received in the match against Atlético de Madrid”
It should be remembered that Dani Alves is not registered in the Europa League , so if Barça ‘s appeal does not progress, the team will lose four games in a row, the ones mentioned against Espanyol and Valencia and the two against Naples . In the coaching staff they are aware of the importance of Alves and that is why they will fight so that the Brazilian does not have to serve the two-game suspension.
In addition to Barça ‘s reaction , Dani Alves himself turned to social networks to show his surprise at his two-game ban and used irony to criticize the arbitration treatment against him.
“I had forgotten about here,” Alves wrote , attaching an image putting his hands on his head after his sending off against Atlético.
