Uefa bans Bayern’s Mueller

The Chronicle

Switzerland — Bayern Munich forward Thomas Mueller has been banned for both games against Liverpool in the Champions League round of 16.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel imposed a two-game ban for Mueller’s red card after a bad tackle against Ajax last month.

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

Bayern travels to Anfield for the first-leg on February 19 and hosts the second-leg on March 13.

Ajax’s Maximilian Woeber also misses the round of 16 games — against Real Madrid — for his red card in a separate incident during his team’s 3-3 draw with Bayern in the final group-stage game.

UEFA also fined Ajax €20 000 and Bayern €8000 for other incidents involving fans. — AP.
