Pique and Lewandowski sent off in Barcelona victory

In his final game before retiring, Gerard Pique was dismissed at the break as Barcelona rallied from a goal down to defeat Osasuna and extend their lead atop the La Liga standings by five points.

Despite sitting on the bench, Pique, 35, was ejected for what appeared to be an argument with the referee.

Robert Lewandowski receiving a second yellow card in the 31st minute infuriated him.

Osasuna took the lead thanks to David Garcia before goals from Pedri and Raphinha.

After receiving a booking for an aerial challenge on Garcia, Lewandowski was sent off for just the second time in his career.

Raphinha headed in Frenkie de Jong’s cross five minutes from time to ensure that Barcelona fully capitalized on Real Madrid’s loss at Rayo Vallecano on Monday. Pedri’s equalizer came early in the second half.
