Filipe Luis Banned For Three Matches

La Liga

Madrid, Spain – The Spanish Committee Commission has sanctioned Atletico Madrid winger Filipe Luis with a three-game ban for the disproportionate tackle made on Lionel Messi at Camp Nou on Saturday for week 22 of La Liga.

The sanctioning body has considered the kick from Brazilian defender falls under the category of  “violence in the game” so that the expulsion has brought three games away from the pitch to the Colchonero player.

The harshness of the foul on Messi shocked the entire soccer world as the player went down hurting. The Brazilian was showered, nonetheless, with critical comments for the action. Fortunately, for Barcelona fans, Messi was able to get off the field and continued playing without lamenting any injury.

Messi has been included in the 18-player list for the Copa del Rey match against Valencia.
