Lewandowski could face a Four match suspension

Date:

Lewandowski was sent off in the match against Osasuna, away at El Sadar. The match was officiated by the referee Jesus Gil Manzano, who deemed Lewandowski’s seemingly intentional attempt to hurt the Osasuna defender without attempting for the ball as a bookable offense.

Lewandowski could face a Four match suspension

Immediately, he was given his second yellow card of the match in the 31st minute of the game, while he already received his first yellow in the 11th minute of the game, reducing Barcelona to 10 men. While walking away from the playing area, he was seen doing some gestures that might well have been offensive towards the ref.

And as a result of that, he might miss out on the next 3 matches, which are against Espanyol, Atletico Madrid, and Getafe. These games will be played after the world cup, and certainly, the polish marksman will be a big miss in these big league fixtures.

The striker has settled in well with the team and has particularly played well in the league, netting the ball 13 times in 14 games, while creating goals for his fellow teammates 4 times.

In a scenario where Lewa will be sidelined, it’s likely either Ansu Fati or Ferran Torres will fill his boots as the central attacker. Ferran has particularly looked in good form in recent matches and he has also regained his confidence. Ansu Fati could be a better profile in terms of threat and he also has a knack for scoring goals and arrives in good positions in the 30-yard box.

Despite being a man down, against one of the toughest opponents they’ve had to face in La Liga this season, FC Barcelona managed to emerge as victors out of this game that seemed doomed quite early on. This relentless fighting spirit has been something that had been missing for the Catalans in recent times, yet it seems this new generation and their young blood may have just that spirit up their sleeves given the numerous late goals La Blaugrana have managed to score this season.

Arch-rivals Real Madrid next face Cadiz on the 11th of November, and the fixture will be key to determining the difference between the two sides going into the World Cup break but one thing is certain the Catalans will head into the break as League Leaders. Visca Barca.
