Pique sees red as Barcelona defeat Getafe

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique saw red in yesterday's 3-1 victory over Getafe.

Pique handled in the area midway through the second half and was shown his second yellow card of the night.

Manu del Moral converted from the spot, but Barcelona were already three goals up at that stage.

The Catalans went in 2-0 ahead at the interval following strikes from Lionel Messi and David Villa.

Pedro then extended Barcelona's lead with a third goal after 64 minutes and the victory never looked in doubt for Pep Guardiola's side, even after they had been reduced to 10 men.

Getafe also finished the match with 10 men after Derek Boateng was sent off with 10 minutes left.
