Barca Femeni has been suspended from the Copa de la Reina after it unknowingly fielded ineligible player Geyse Ferreira in its 9-0 Round of 16 win against Osasuna.

Barca Femeni has been suspended from the Copa de la Reina after it unknowingly fielded ineligible player Geyse Ferreira in its 9-0 Round of 16 win against Osasuna. The Sevilla women’s team has also been disqualified for the same reason after it played Nagore Calderon in its 1-0 win against Villarreal.

Geyse was due to be serving a suspension carried over from last season while playing for Madrid CFF, while Calderon had been red-carded in the team’s last cup game last season.

The teams have 10 days to appeal the suspension to the federation.

As things stand, Barca Femeni’s treble hopes have taken a hit after the suspension.

The team is top of the Primera Division standings with 42 points, winning all the 14 matches it has played this season.
