Ibrahimovic given two-game ban

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been handed a two-match ban for his red card in the Champions League victory against Valencia on February 12.

The Swede, 31, will now miss the second leg of the last-16 fixture in Paris next week, which PSG lead 2-1 and the first leg in the quarter-finals, should they make it through.

Ibrahimovic was sent off at the end of the game for a reckless challenge on Valencia's Andres Guardado and given an automatic one-game ban, however that has now been doubled.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti will be unhappy to lose his star striker for a second game after complaining at the time that the red card was not just.

He said: "Ibrahimovic's red card was not deserved. I don't understand it. It's not fair. I don't think that he deserved it because it was a normal tackle."
