Luis Suarez Banned For Two Cup Matches

The Spanish football federation has suspended FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez for two Copa del Rey matches for insulting Espanyol players.

The referee’s report for the heated cup match at Camp Nou that ended in a 4-1 win for Barcelona on Wednesday said Suarez insulted Espanyol players in the tunnel after the match.

Espanyol had two players sent off in the loss.

Barcelona said in a statement that they would appeal the ruling, denying Suarez insulted his opponents.

The return leg is next week at Espanyol.
