Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski is set to miss the club’s next three matches after a ban was finally upheld following an unsuccessful appeal.
The Spanish administrative tribunal of sport (TAD) on Wednesday, reviewed the LaLiga giants’ appeal of Lewandowski’s three-game suspension.
And according to Marca, they have decided to uphold the decision.
Lewandowski was punished after picking up a second yellow card and then making a gesture in Barcelona’s league game against Osasuna on November 8.
But Barca appealed the ban, and Lewandowski played against Espanyol last weekend.
Manager Xavi Hernandez even said he expected the Poland striker to be available for Sunday’s game against Atletico Madrid, but he will now have to watch from the stands.
Lewandowski has scored 13 times in 15 LaLiga appearances this season.
