Thomas Muller has received a two-match ban by UEFA meaning he will miss both legs of Bayern Munich’s Champions League last-16 encounter with Liverpool.
The 29-year-old forward was sent off for a horrific tackle on Nicolas Tagliafico in a dramatic 3-3 draw with Ajax last month, Bayern’s final game of Group E.
Muller made contact with Tagliafico’s head while challenging for the ball and the match had to be paused as the Ajax defender received medical treatment on the ground.
