MADRID — Espanyol has challenged the result of the derby against Barcelona to the Spanish soccer federation. Espanyol says Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski was ineligible to play because of a suspension. The teams drew 1-1 on Saturday. Espanyol played under protest because of Lewandowski's participation despite him being sent off in Barcelona's previous league game. A court in Madrid on Friday ruled that Lewandowski was allowed to play until Spain's administrative court for sport made a final ruling on the appeal that Barcelona lodged against his three-game suspension.
