PARIS (AFP) - Paris Saint-Germain's volatile star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final after being banned for one match for his sending-off in the last round against Chelsea.
But his Ivory Coast team-mate Serge Aurier will have to sit out three matches for his outburst criticising the match referee on social media.
Ibrahimovic was shown a straight red card by Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers in the 32nd minute of the second leg against Chelsea following a 50-50 challenge with Oscar, despite the fact that both players had seemed equally committed to the tackle.
The Swede is facing a further four-match suspension over comments he made about his host country at the end of last weekend's defeat at Bordeaux.
PSG will discover their quarter-final opponents when the draw is made on Friday in Switzerland.
