Luis Suarez verdict due on Thursday

The Court of Arbitration for Sport expects to announce a verdict on the appeal by Barcelona forward Luis Suarez against his four-month on Thursday.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) expects to announce a verdict on the appeal by Barcelona forward Luis Suarez against his four-month ban from football on Thursday afternoon, according to a statement.

- Cruyff concern over unbalanced Barca team
- Scudamore: Time was right for Suarez exit

Suarez, 27, attended a hearing at the court based in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Friday to appeal against the sanction, which includes a nine-match international suspension.

It was imposed by FIFA, world football's governing body, after he bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini while playing for Uruguay in the World Cup.

Last month, FIFA rejected Suarez's appeal against his lengthy ban, prompting him to take the issue to the CAS.

On Wednesday morning the court published a statement on its official website which reads: "The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will announce its decision in the matter Luis Suarez, FC Barcelona & the Uruguayan FA on Thursday Aug. 14 2014 at around 3 p.m. [local time, 9 a.m. ET]. This case was heard on Aug. 8 2014 at the CAS offices in Lausanne.

"At the request of the Appellants and with the agreement of FIFA, the CAS has conducted an expedited arbitration procedure. As a consequence, the CAS Panel has accepted to render its decision within a short period of time but with grounds to follow later."

Barcelona striker Suarez is fighting his ban from all football-related activity.

Suarez's legal team are hopeful of getting the punishment reduced, possibly by half, meaning he would be able to play for Barcelona before his ban is due to end on Oct. 26 -- the potential date of a clasico meeting with Real Madrid.

Despite the bite on Chiellini, Barcelona pushed ahead with their pursuit of the Uruguay striker, signing him from Liverpool in a 75 million-pound deal.
