Filipe Luis' suspension for tackle on Lionel Messi reduced to one game

Filipe Luis' three-match ban for his lunge into Barcelona's Lionel Messi during Aletico Madrid's 2-1 defeat last weekend has been reduced to one match by the Spanish Federation's appeals committee. 

Atletico Madrid had appealed the sanction with Enrique Cerezo saying that it was unduly harsh compared to similar incidents in La Liga. 

The appeals committee said in a statement that the referee report "did not explain exactly why the clash was so dangerous."

The Brazil international was shown a straight red card for the challenge, which caught Messi on the knee just before half-time.

The initial report from the competition committee said Filipe Luis had been given a three-game ban because of the "special seriousness of the action."
