One game ban for Adriano

Adriano has been handed a one-match suspension for his sending off in the Super Cup, but will only serve it in the same competition.

The Brazilian was dismissed during the first half of the second leg tie at the Santiago Bernabeu, for pulling back Cristiano Ronaldo and denying a goalscoring opportunity.

The full-back, who netted the only goal in Barcelona’s 1-0 victory at the weekend over Valencia, has subsequently been handed a one-game ban by the Competition Committee.

Due to regulations brought in last summer, the suspension is only applicable to the competition in which the dismissal was picked up in, so Adriano is banned from Barca’s next Super Cup match.
