Barcelona Femeni thrown out of Spanish Cup

Meanwhile, Barcelona have been kicked out of Spain's top domestic women's cup competition for fielding an ineligible player.

The Catalan club recorded a 9-0 triumph in the round of 16 of the Copa de la Reina two weeks ago, but their opponents Osasuna claimed the domestic champions fielded an unqualified player.

Geyse Ferreira, who scored one of Barcelona's nine goals, should have supposedly faced a one-match ban after she was sent off in the competition last season while at Madrid CFF.
