's La Liga match against Elche on Sunday after rejecting Barcelona's appeal.

During the Spanish Super Cup final, which ended in a 3-2 victory for Athletic Bilbao, the referee sent off Lionel Messi after a rough conflict. This was the first dismissal of Lionel Messi during his club football career, and the other two red cards he received were in the Argentina national team jersey. Messi hit Villareli with a hard blow to the head, which led to the red card.

Although Messi was suspended for two sessions, Barça decided to appeal the ban. However, their request was denied, and Messi, who spent the first session of his suspension against Cornella, will be suspended from accompanying his team against Elche. Thus, he will have no problem facing Rayo Vallecano in the next round of the Copa del Rey.
