Sergio Busquets is handed a two-match ban by UEFA for his actions during a recent match against Benfica.

UEFA have suspended Barcelona's Sergio Busquets for two Champions League matches.

The midfielder has been punished for his actions during Barcelona's 2-0 victory away in Benfica last week.

Referee Cuneyt Cakir handed the Spanish international his marching orders for a challenge that he made on Benfica captain Maxi Pereira.

Having now reviewed the incident, the European governing body have decided that a two-game ban will suffice.

He will now miss his side's two upcoming matches against Scottish champions Celtic.
