    BARCELONA and Sevilla’s women teams have been kicked out of the Copa de la Reina for fielding ineligible players.

    Barcelona Femeni, nine-time winners of the cup, fielded Brazilian striker Geyse against Osasuna.

    However she was sent off in the quarter-finals of last year’s competition while playing for Madrid CFF and was meant to be serving a suspension.

    Barca said the ban had not shown up on the RFEF’s website or internal system that is used by clubs.

    The Catalan club have now been fined just over 1,000 euros but have 10 days to appeal the disqualification.

    Sevilla have also been thrown out of the cup for also using a player who should not have been on the pitch.

    Nagore Calderon was sent off against UD Granadilla Tenerife in last season’s quarter-final.

    But Sevilla brought her off the bench in a 1-0 win over Villarreal, landing them in hot water.

    Villarreal will now take their place in the quarter-final.
