Lionel Messi starred one of the most important actions of the final of the Supercopa of Spain, in front of the Athletic of Bilbao. The captain culé, totally annoying and frustrated by all what was living in the party, removed of on to Asier Villalibre, player of the 'lions', in a struggle that finished with a manotazo of 'The Flea' in the head of the Basque player. In principle, Gil Manzano did not see the action, but from the VAR recommended him see the action in the monitor and finished commanding to the street to Messi, minutes before it finished the clash.

In the referee's record of the party, described the expulsion of Messi like a hit "to a contrary with the arm doing use of excessive strength being the balloon at stake", by what understood that the Argentinian could be suspended of one to three parties by the action. And, with the recent precedents in the Spanish football, of similar cases in the last months, yes is the possibility that the sanction no pass, in no case, of the two clashes.

The most recent precedent took place in the party between the Málaga and Logroñés, in the Glass of Rey, recently more than three weeks. The referee of the meeting, Álvaro Moreno Aragon, signalled a fault on Yanis Rahmani, of Iñaki Sáenz, the one who already there was incordiado to the frank player-Algerian in several opportunities. When the same extreme had to earn the fault, the referee received the warning from the VAR so that it reviewed a possible expulsion.

Rahmani Had struck with his fist to Sáenz in the face and, although it seemed totally haphazard, Aragon did not understand it like this and finished commanding to the player malaguista to the street, with an hour of party for contesting. Later, in the record described the action as it did in the case of Leo Messi and the player finished being sanctioned only by a party.

They could be two parties

Recently less than two months, in a crash between the Sporting and Sabadell, Grego Sierra was expelled, also with red direct, by a similar action to the one of 'The Flea'. The defence arlequinado, encarado by a player of the Sporting, went in with with excess of strength, with the arms by in front, by what saw the red cardboard. In the record, the referee of the meeting described the action like a hit with "the arm in the neck of an opponent without being the balloon to a distance to be played and with use of excessive strength" and andl footballer was sanctioned by two parties.

Another similar case was the one of Charles Dias, leading Brazilian of the Pontevedra, expelled recently by an also similar action to the one of the Argentinian. "Strike in the neck of a contrary with the open hand with an excessive strength without being the balloon at stake", said the record on the exjugador of the Celtic. His sanction was by two parties.
