Bayern's Jerome Boateng handed three-match ban for Schalke red card

Schalke missed an opportunity to inflict a second straight defeat on Bayern Munich as they managed only a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich centre-back Jerome Boateng has received a three-match ban for his red card against Schalke, and will miss Bundesliga games against Stuttgart, Hamburg and Paderborn.

The Federal Court of the German Football Asscociation (DFB) presented the Germany international with the ban, which will see Boateng out of action until Bayern's home game against Cologne on Feb. 27 following his 17th-minute sending off in the 1-1 draw against Schalke on Monday.

Boateng had committed a professional foul on Schalke attacker Sidney Sam and was dismissed by referee Bastian Dankert, who also awarded a penalty to the Royal Blues -- but Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's spot-kick was saved by Manuel Neuer.

Arjen Robben headed the hosts in front on 67 minutes, though Benedikt Howedes' effort five minutes later ensured Schalke left the Allianz Arena with a share of the points.

Tuesday's red card was Boateng fourth red card in the Bundesliga. In December 2009, he was dismissed while still plying his trade for Hamburg, and received red cards in Hannover in 2011 and Hamburg last year while playing for Bayern.

His previous offenses were factored into the finding of the verdict and added on top of the minimum ban of two games, though Sky Sport reports that Bayern intend to appeal the suspension.

Boateng has also received two red cards in Champions League -- against BATE in December 2012 and at Manchester City in October 2013.
