Lionel Messi crimson card Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao
There was a feeling that Lionel Messi was incredibly frustrated this season at Barcelona and that came to the fore when he got a straight red in the final moments of his Super Cup defeat tonight.
There is a tangle of the ball but it clearly loses its temper and hits the Bilbao player so the referee had no choice but to send him off the pitch after the VAR review:

It came in the last few moments when they were already headed for defeat, but this was Koeman’s chance to win some cutlery so he must be mad at his star afterward
