Busquets handed two-match ban

Sergio Busquets has been handed a two-match ban by UEFA

following his dismissal in Barcelona’s 2-0 Champions League Group G

win over Benfica.

Busquets saw red in the 88th minute of the match last week for a

rash challenge on Benfica captain Maxi Pereira.

The ban will rule him out of Barca’s group matches against

Celtic, in Barcelona on October 23 and in Glasgow on November


Busquets has three days to appeal the ban.
