Red card of Pique revoked

The Competition Committee of the Spanish Football Federation RFEF has yesterday decided to leave "without effect" the second yellow card that Barcelona central defender Gerard Piqué received in the second half of the game against Villarreal on Sunday.

Piqué will therefore be available for the league match against Mallorca on Saturday 3 January in the Camp Nou.

Barcelona had appealed the second yellow card that resulted in the sending off of Piqué, who was penalised after jumping to challenge for the ball with Villarreal striker Franco, with television replays suggesting the decision was not correct.

are the rules diffrent. I know you can appeal against a stright red but appealing against 2nd yellow is strange to me.. BUT AM HAPPY cos it was a sending off IMO. When you are winning everything goes your way and when you are loosing, everything works against us. We shall enjoy this for as long as possible...

I agree... harsh second yellow. Questionable foul at best.

I had a feeling that the second yellow could be repealed. Good for us.
