FC Barcelona and Sevilla, eliminated in the Copa de la Reina due to incorrect positioning

FC Barcelona and Sevilla are eliminated from the Queen’s Cup due to a wrong line-up in the eighth finals against Osasuna, 0-9, and against Villarreal, each 0-1, this Tuesday Reserve Disciplinary Judge of the Competition Commission.

The Barcelona team faced the Brazilian on January 10 in a resounding victory over Navarra team Gêiser Ferreira, who was sent off by his then team in last season’s final cup match for a double yellow card Madrid CFF against Sporting Huelva, and had the fine.

For example, the court is dependent on the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) that has confirmed and explained Osasuna’s statement.

The existence of a wrong line-up of FC Barcelona player Geyse da Silva Ferreira (…) declared that FC Barcelona lost the game and decided the knockout stage of the Copa de la Reina in the round of 16 in favor of CDF Osasuna Femenino.

Xavi Hernández Technical director of the Barsa men’s club, admitted the “mistake” of the women’s section of the barça club and explained it in the press conference for the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey against Real Sociedad.

There are some laws. It was our mistake. They knock us out of the Copa de la Reina and we have to accept that. There is a law and the law decides. It’s our responsibility.

Barça argue for the wrong women’s line-up and Xavi admits it is a club mistake that must be accepted. All very congruent and very good communication. pic.twitter.com/MljzRTM3dz
