Xavi was handed his marching orders at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium after raging at the match official.

The Barcelona boss was booked for protesting after seeing Robert Lewandowski go to ground under a challenge from Axel Witsel. Xavi then continued his protests after an apparent foul on Ilkay Gundogan and was shown a red card.

Xavi has been no stranger to yellow cards in what is his final season as Barcelona boss. The former midfielder has already served two touchline bans in the current campaign and now looks set for more time in the stands.

The red card will be a blow for Xavi, but his team’s performance will provide plenty of cheer with Joao Felix, Robert Lewandowski, and Fermin Lopez all on target.

Xavi and the Catalans will move into second place in the table with a win over Atletico. The Catalans’ next La Liga fixture is against Las Palmas on Saturday, March 30.
