Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller will miss both legs of the Champions League last 16 tie with Liverpool following his red card last month.

The 29-year-old was sent off in the German champions’ group stage 3-3 draw with Ajax and UEFA have announced that he will have to serve a two-match ban. The sides meet at Anfield on 19 February and in Munich on 13 March.

Ajax’s Maximilian Woeber will also miss his club’s last 16 tie against Real Madrid after his red card in the same match, though a separate incident. Muller saw red for a head-high kick on Nicolas Tagliafico.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s Croatia Dejan Lovren defender has been banned for one international match over comments he made on social media about opponents Spain following his side's 3-2 Nations League win in November.

Lovren posted a video on Instagram where he appeared to brag about elbowing Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and made insulting comments about the Spain team following the game on 15 March.

He also told reporters after the match that Spain were "rude on the pitch" and bad losers.

UEFA said that Lovren had fallen foul of a clause in its disciplinary rules which penalises anyone "whose conduct is insulting or otherwise violates the basic rules of decent conduct."

He was suspended from Croatia's next UEFA competition match, which is the Euro 2020 qualifiers at home to Azerbaijan in March.

Despite the win, Croatia finished bottom of Group A4 after losing their final game to England and were relegated to League B of UEFA's new competition.
