Pique accused of picking yellow card on purpose to play in El Clasico
- The Barcelona defender deliberately kicked the ball to the stands during Sevilla clash.
- Gerard got booked and will miss the next match against Eibar.
- Therefore, he will be cleared to play in the game with Real Madrid.
It looks like someone's playing really smart.
During the Sevilla clash, Gerard Pique kicked the ball to the stands on purpose in order to get booked and miss the match against Eibar. Should this work out for Gerard, he is going to rest until the next El Clasico. With the international break and the next La Liga match missed, the defender is going to be rested and ready to cause problems for Real Madrid.
Let's hope he doesn't get a two-game ban for these actions, though!
