Barcelona are expected to boycott a Spanish Football Federation meeting in protest against what they claim of biased refereeing.

Barca are particularly unhappy with Gerard Pique's red card against Sporting Gijon.

Club spokesman Toni Freixa revealed the club's boycott of Tuesday's RFEF general assembly.

"Hopefully in the remainder of the season, we have no grounds to feel how we feel now," he said.

"It (refereeing) is a difficult task and we understand that this year we're lucky. However, we remain faithful not to discuss the work of the referees."

He added: "It should be noted that the behaviour of our players and coaching staff has been and is impeccable in Barcelona and the Spanish team."
