Mascherano sent off inside tunnel following Barcelona's defeat to Osasuna

The Argentine was shown a second yellow card for dissent towards referee Jose Romero after the match, while coach Pep Guardiola was also booked for the same reason

Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano was sent off in the tunnel following a heated confrontation with the referee after his side's 3-2 loss to Osasuna on Saturday.

The former Liverpool man was yellow carded on 88 minutes by Jose Romero for protesting a decision, but shortly after the game, he was shown a second yellow for a subsequent act of dissent towards the match official.

Romero also added in his post-match report that coach Pep Guardiola was penalized on the grounds of protesting in the latter stages of the encounter.

Barcelona remains seven points behind Real Madrid at the Primera Division summit, but could fall further behind if the Blancos beat Levante on Sunday.
