Villa handed one-match suspension

Barcelona striker David Villa has been given a one-match ban after his red card against Athletic Bilbao.

Villa was sent off late on in the 3-1 win at San Mames when he reacted to a foul by lashing out at Athletic defender Carlos Gurpegi.

Athletic's Fernando Amorebieta, who was dismissed in the same game for his challenge on Andres Iniesta, has also been handed a one-match suspension.

Villa will miss Sunday's game against Real Mallorca at Camp Nou while Amorebieta will miss Saturday's trip to Valencia.
