Barca to appeal Vilanova ban
Vilanova, taking control of only his third competitive match
since replacing Pep Guardiola, was sent to the stands in the 70th
minute of the match for what the referee’s report claimed was
“angrily protesting a play during the match after being warned by
the assistant referee”.
However, Vilanova says he was only calling for a foul and Barca
have decided to appeal against the ruling.
Barca won the match 2-1 after trailing at half-time, with Lionel
Messi netting both of his side’s goals in the 75th and 80th
