Ousmane Dembélé will, in all likelihood, have a two-match penalty. If we go back to one that Pepe had from Madrid, the comparison is alarming

Ousmane Dembélé Has put in a garden in which it was not necessary to go in in a party like which the FC Barcelona played against the Seville and in a moment in which all was decided with a marker of 4-0. The French forward exposes to one almost safe sanction of two parties that will not allow him play the Classical against the Real Madrid.

Dembélé Will be punished by "desconsideración" to the referee Mateu Lahoz, that drafted in the record that the Frenchman there was him espetado "very bad, are very bad" to protest him the previous expulsion of Ronald Araújo. Until the moment, remember three precedents with this same textual sentence -with Gabriel Pires, Fabián Orellana and Álvaro González like protagonists- and the sanction always were two parties.

This yes, there is a fourth precedent that received the same sanction in an alike situation but in some much more offensive terms. It was in March of 2012, after a Villarreal- Real Madrid, when the Unemployed Andalusian referee Romero reflected in the referee's record that the then white defence Pepe shouted him: "it Go I rob, son of a bitch!".

In this case, the Committee of Competition considered that the sentence of the central madridista was "despise or desconsideración", in place of "insult", that had involved him a possible sanction of four until 12 parties. Thus, it generates some confusion and indignation that sanction the same the "are very bad" of Dembélé with the "go rob, son of a bitch!" Of Pepe.

The Article 117 of the Disciplinary Code

In that case, applied him to Pepe the Article 117 of the Disciplinary Code, that dictates that "head to the referees, directors or sportive authorities in terms or with attitudes of despise or of desconsideración whenever the action do not constitute lacking graver, will sanction with suspension of two to three parties or by time of until a month".

With almost total probability, this same article will be the one who employ by the sanction to Dembélé. Mateu Lahoz Was very rigorous with his two red cardboards, although it also is true that the French extreme spoke of more in a situation that for nothing required of a protest with all sentenced.
