Lionel Messi escaped being sent off for violent conduct in Barcelona’s defeat by Sevilla on Wednesday – one month after his first red card for the club for punching an opponent.

Messi cut a frustrated figure as Barca lost the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final and he became involved in a heated off-the-ball incident with Joan Jordan with the forward appearing to elbow his opponent.

The clash happened mid-way through the second half with Jordan bringing Messi down after the Argentine had nut-megged him.
