Zlatan Ibrahimovic suspended for 2 Champions League matches
Suspension extended 1 game
UEFA has banned Zlatan Ibrahimovic for two Champions League matches, ruling the influential forward out of the quarter-finals, first leg if Paris Saint-Germain advances.
UEFA says its disciplinary panel extended an automatic one-match sanction for Ibrahimovic's challenge on Valencia midfielder Andres Guardado in stoppage-time of a last-16, first-leg match this month.
Ibrahimovic was shown a straight red card in stoppage-time in Spain, and was already certain to miss the return in Paris on March 6. PSG holds a 2-1 lead.
UEFA's additional punishment applies to the next European club competition for which Ibrahimovic is eligible.
UEFA makes the quarter-finals draw on March 15.
Ibrahimovic and PSG can appeal to UEFA.
