Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has been hit with a two-game ban by the Spanish FA (RFEF) after being shown a red card in Thursday's deflating 2-1 defeat at home to Granada and will miss the visit of La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid next Saturday.
The Dutchman's suspension starts with Sunday's trip to his former club Valencia as Barca look to bounce back from the loss to Granada, which means the Catalans no longer have the destiny of the title in their own hands.
Koeman was dismissed in the aftermath of Darwin Machis's 63rd minute equalizer for Granada at the Nou Camp.
