Real fail in Griezmann appeal

Real Sociedad have been dealt a blow with the news that Antoine Griezmann will be suspended for the visit of Valencia this weekend.

The club had appealed the Frenchman’s booking picked up at the weekend in the hope of deactivating an automatic one-game ban for accumulated yellow cards through the season.

However, the Competition Committee have this week rejected the appeal and unless La Real take it to the Appeals Committee, they will certainly have to do without the youngster this weekend.

It is a blow for the Basques, as Sunday evening sees Valencia visit Anoeta in a potential Champions League qualification decider.
