Muller, Woeber and Lovren handed match bans — UEFA crackdown

Thomas Muller

Thomas Muller is set to be unavailable for both legs of Bayern Munich's Champions League last-16 clash with Liverpool after UEFA hit the forward with a two-match ban.

The panel added an extra game to the one-match ban for a straight red card.

Muller, 29, was sent off in December's 3-3 group-stage draw with Ajax for kicking Nicolas Tagliafico in the head.

Bayern will travel to Anfield for the first leg against Liverpool on February 19, with the Premier League leaders coming to the Allianz Arena on March 13.

However, Bayern have said they will appeal against the decision.

Maximilian Wober, who was also sent off during the 3-3 draw at the Johan Cruyff Arena for a unsafe tackle on Franck Ribery, will miss Ajax's last 16 tie with Real Madrid after he was handed a two-match ban as well.

UEFA have also banned Croatia defender Dejan Lovren for one worldwide match over comments he made on social media about opponents Spain following his side's 3-2 Nations League win in November.

Lovren posted a video on Instagram where he appeared to brag about elbowing Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and made insulting comments about the Spain team following the game on March 15.
