Officially… determining the final position of Lewandowski and Cancelo regarding El Clásico

After a great controversy that arose in recent days, the participation of Robert Lewandowski and Joao Cancelo in the upcoming Barcelona and Real Madrid match was confirmed once and for all.

The duo received a yellow card against Las Palmas on Saturday, due to which they will miss Cadiz’s next match due to suspension.

Many Spanish newspapers considered that the players deliberately received a warning so that they would be suspended against Cadiz and their participation in El Clásico would be confirmed.

According to the laws of the Spanish Federation, if a player deliberately receives a warning to avoid missing any match, he must be punished by suspension for another match.

Ultimately, the Spanish Competitions Committee settled the matter by confirming that there was no evidence that Lewandowski and Cancelo intentionally received a warning for absenting themselves from Cadiz and participating in El Clásico.

Thus, only the Polish and Portuguese will miss the Cadiz match and return against Real Madrid, and the same applies to centre-back Iñago Martinez.

It is noteworthy that Barcelona faces the risk of losing the duo Ilkay Gundogan and Orel Romeu in El Clásico if one of them receives a yellow card in the Cadiz match next week.
