The decision to rescind the yellow card shown to Nacho Fernández in Real Madrid's weekend win over Sevilla hasn't gone down well in Catalonia.

The booking, Nacho's fifth of the season, saw him incur a one-match ban, initially ruling him out of Real's rearranged LaLiga clash at Celta Vigo tonight.

However, today's ruling by the Spanish Football Federation's Appeals Committee frees him up for the game at Balaídos, which Real go into knowing four points from their final two league fixtures will hand them the title at Barcelona's expense.

Sport: "Another injustice"

Barcelona-based daily Sport reacted with incredulity to the panel's verdict, crying: "Yet another scandalous decision in Real Madrid's favour!

"Once again, Real have been favoured by the game's governing bodies. The pressure applied by the club on the Appeals Committee has brought results.

"Another injustice that has again benefited Real Madrid in their bid to win the 2016/2017 LaLiga Santander," the newspaper concluded.
