Thursday 07 March 2013
Barcelona will appeal against a four-match ban handed to goalkeeper Victor Valdes after he berated the referee at the end of Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Real Madrid.
Valdes confronted Miguel Angel Perez Lasa after the referee had waved away appeals for a late penalty following an apparent trip on Adriano by Sergio Ramos. A club statement said: "FC Barcelona will appeal in the coming days."
