Eibar's Fabian Orellana Got One Of The Most Ridiculous Red Cards

Barcelona are pretty good at football, not news to anyone really. When you're playing against them you probably need to keep 11 players on the pitch, so Eibar were probably fuming when Fabian Orellana got one of the most farcical red cards going.

The La Liga table has had a surprise look about it all season with Barcelona running away with things when they were expected to struggle but it's been so easy for them that they can afford to take things easy now.

Barca have taken things so easy in February that they've even drawn two of their league games in the shortest month of the year and they're still 10 points clear of second place Atletico Madrid.

Today they took on 7th place Eibar. The side have had a very good season themselves and are fighting to be in the Europa League. The Basque side were doing pretty well and only 1-0 down thanks to some Lionel Messi genius.

However things suddenly got a lot harder for them in the 66th minute when winger Fabian Orellana picked up a red card. His second yellow came with the game stopped for a foul and then he punched the ball away, idiot:

Somewhat predictably going down to 10 men didn't help Eibar. Having put their guests under plenty of pressure for over an hour they eventually succumbed to a second goal from Jordi Alba.

Orellana was a bit of a silly boy for punching the ball but he's got previous having once been sent off against the Catalan giants for throwing grass at Sergio Busquets, no doubt the Spaniard went down clutching his face.
