Barcelona’s prolific forward, Lionel Messi, has avoided a lengthy ban on the sidelines after collecting the first red card of his playing career.

Following his Supercopa final dismissal against Athletic Club, Messi bagged two-game suspension.

The RFEF, who are in charge of disciplinary conduct in Spain, ruled that the Argentine will not have to serve a lengthy suspension for going all out at Asier Villalibre.

It had initially been suggested that Lionel Messi could face up to a 12-game ban as a result of his actions.

Match officials and RFEF decided that there was no aggression on the part of Messi, which contributed to the reduced sentence.
