The next day of LaLiga will arrive with two sensitive drops for the FC Barcelona. Gavi Saw the fifth yellow in the defeat in front of Almería (1-0), by which will lose the party in front of the Valency by sanction. The own sucederá with Xavi Hernández, the one who also was apercibido for protesting a no conceded corner to the Barça, with which his brother, Óscar, will have to do charge of the bench in front of the group 'Ché'.
The technician egarense was admonished by the referee Ortiz Arias in the minute 51 when demanding a very clear corner of Robertone that the judge of line omitted. It was the fifth yellow for the míster of Terrassa, to the equal that for Gavi. Again, the temperament of the mediocentro costs him a suspension, this time of absurd form, for protesting angrily a kickoff of band.
The one of The Palaces and Villafranca neither could be the Thursday in Old Trafford after the yellow received in the gone in Camp Nou in front of the Manchester United, by which the technical body will have to converse with the player of 18 years to avoid these situations. In fact, Gavi has been apercibido in eight opportunities in the 2022/23 adding all the competitions, a sample of his usual character and vehemence to contest balloons during the party.
In addition to Gavi, Ferran Torres and Sergio Busquets also arrived in 'chapel' to the crash in front of Almería, but both culminated the party without receiving cautions. The captain was substituted in the minute 76 by the canterano Ángel Alarcón, while the one of Foios played the 90 minutes. The entry of Alarcón was accompanied by the one of Pablo Tower, the one who replaced to Sergi Roberto in a desperate attempt of Xavi for burning the ships going to by the tie.
The fright with Raphinha
Another of the admonished in front of Almería was Raphinha, apercibido by Ortiz Arias when trying take out fast a free shot in which Jordi Alba demanded the distance of the barrier. In principle, it was the fifth card for the Brazilian, but the Barça cleared that it treats of the fourth yellow in the tournament, by which does not deserve sanction. With this, the one of Carry Cheerful, acting in front of Almería, yes will be able to be of the game in front of Valencia next Sunday.
