LIGA BBVA | SEVILLA 2 - BARCELONA 3
Debateable sending off for Sevilla's Gary Medel
Cesc appeared to overreact after Medel squared up to him, the latter was sent off as a result. Just before Busquets had received a yellow card for stamping on Cicinho, and could have been sent off for the foul.
Controversial night in the Sánchez Pizjuán. With a little over 20 minutes left in the game between Sevilla and Barcelona the referee, Mateu Lahoz, gave Busquets a yellow card for a hard challenge on Cicinho that could have been a straight red.
Just after, the referee did show a red card, this time to Gary Medel after he had squared up to Cesc who then appeared to overreact, reeling backwards and holding his face when there did not appear to be much, if any, contact between the two.
