Barcelona won a key game to stay at the top of The Spanish League, but the win by the minimum with 10 players against Osasuna in Pamplona left consequences. The expulsion of Robert Lewandowski heated the spirits at Blaugrana and Gerard Piqué also saw a red card in his last game as a professional footballer after insulting the match referee.

The events that gave rise to the player's deep anger, which began on the substitutes' bench, date back to the beginning of the duel with David García's goal 5 minutes after the execution of a corner. The entire visit called for a foul by Unai Garcia against Marcos Alonso which was neither sanctioned by Jesús Gil Manzano nor alerted by the VAR< /b>, by Javier Iglesias Villanueva.

The second fact that motivated Piqué's anger reached the average hour of the match with the expulsion of Lewandowski for a double yellow card that left the Culéswith one less player. At the start of it, the Polish striker gesticulated against the public and made gestures that suggested a supposed arrangement in the run-up to the crossing.

The partial defeat reigned in the result until the end of the first part. With the final whistle, came the outburst of the central defender who was retiring in this match. Piqué waited until the end of the initial stage to approach Gil Manzano and spoke for a few moments, but the main judge of the match tried to move away from the defender to go to the locker room.
