Muller Receives 2 Match Ban Following His Red Card Against Ajax

Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller is set to miss both legs of their champions league last 16 tie against Liverpool after he was given a two match suspension following his awful challenge on Tagliafico.

The German international was brandished a straight red card for a high foot tackle on Nicolas Tagliafico during a group stage match with Ajax last month in Amsterdam, which ended 3-3.

Muller faced a mandatory one match ban which will automatically rule him out of the first leg at Anfield on February 19. However, the UEFA’s disciplinary panel have now imposed a two match sanction.

Bayern have already responded saying they will appeal against the decision.
