Gerard Pique is accused of intentionally getting a yellow in order to play against Real Madrid in the upcoming El Clasico, claims Marca.

Barcelona centre-back received his fifth yellow card of the season on Sunday’s 4-0 win over Sevilla.

Therefore, Pique will miss La Liga’s next fixture with Eibar which will be the first game after the international break but a week later he will be able to play against Real Madrid at Camp Nou.
