Ousmane Dembele to miss EL Clasico after receiving two-match ban

Ousmane Dembele will miss this season's first Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid after he was banned for two matches by the Spanish football federation (RFEF) on Wednesday.
Dembele was sent off in the second half of Barcelona 4-0 win over Sevilla on Sunday for speaking to the referee "Mateu Lahoz: "very bad, very bad".
The Spanish FA disciplinary committee ruled that Dembele's reaction constituted an "attitude of contempt or disregard for referees" and suspended the Frenchman for two matches.
This means Ousmane Dembele will miss Bacelona upcoming La Liga fixtures away at Eibar on October 19 and at home to Real Madrid on October 26.
Ronald Araujo, a 20-year-old defender, and Gerard Pique both received one-match bans and will also miss the game against Eibar.
"FC Barcelona has decided to appeal the sanctions imposed by the disciplinary committee to both Ousmane Dembele and Ronald Araujo," the club said in a statement.
