Muller suspended for Bayern Munich’s clash with Liverpool

UEFA have handed Thomas Muller a two-match suspension in the Champions League, which rules him out of Bayern Munich’s last-16 clash with Liverpool

The European football governing body decided to hand Muller a ban after he was shown a straight red card for a dangerous high challenge on Nicolas Tagliafico in Bayern’s game against Ajax last month.

In Amsterdam, Muller’s studs on his boots scrapped Tagliafico’s head while he attempted to control a cross.

Fortunately, Tagliafico escaped the incident unharmed and he would later go on to score Ajax’s equaliser in a thrilling 3-3 draw.

But BBC reports that Muller has been hit with a two-match ban on Friday as a result of his actions.
