Lewandowski’s suspension increased to 3 games in Spain | Sports

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski’s suspension was increased to three games by the Spanish soccer federation on Wednesday.

Lewandowski had received a one-game ban when he was sent off with a second yellow card during Barca win 2-1 at Osasuna November 8. The Spanish football federation’s competition committee has now added two more games to his suspension due to what it said was the player’s “disrespect” towards the referee after he was sent off.
