Dembele to miss Clasico with two-match ban

DHAKA: Ousmane Dembele won't be available for Barcelona's Clasico with Real Madrid on October 26.

The competition committee have confirmed this Wednesday morning that the Frenchman's suspension will be for two games, which means he will miss the matches against Eibar and Los Blancos.

Dembele was sent off at the weekend for telling referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz that he is "very bad".

FC Barcelona has decided to appeal against the suspensions handed out by the league's disciplinary committee to Ousmane Dembélé and Ronaldo Araujo after both were sent off in the final moments of Sunday's Barça v Sevilla fixture. The Club had already presented arguments against the two dismissals on Monday. 

The disciplinary committee has suspended the French striker for two games according to the referee's report for, "addressing the referee in the following terms: 'Very bad, you are very bad', whilst gesticulating with his arms from a short distance away." 

The Uruguayan centre back was suspended for one game after the disciplinary committee stated "contact exists and the opponent is brought down.'
