Sporting CP announced on Saturday night after the match against Portimonense that they will request that the second yellow on Bolasie be overturned.
Team manager Beto made the announcement after the League Cup win.
Beto and the team feel no foul was committed on the play in question in the 45th minute.
“The VAR is not perfect, but today proved it was really needed and we will ask that the second yellow be withdrawn,” said Beto.
As it stands, Bolasie would not be eligible to play against FC Porto in Alvalade on January 5.
