Allegations against Iniesta yellow card

The club’s legal services have presented video evidence that Andrés Iniesta should not have been booked.

On Tuesday, FC Barcelona presented allegations to the Competition Committee that the referee was wrong to issue a yellow card to midfielder Andrés Iniesta in the 68th minute of last weekend's game with Betis. The appeal includes video evidence.

Referee Iglesias Villanueva booked Iniesta for diving in the Betis area, but the video clearly shows that the player only fell because he had been fouled by a defender. (via FCBarcelona.cat)
