NYON, Switzerland (AP) -UEFA has banned Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets for two Champions League matches after he was sent off for violent conduct in a 2-0 victory against Benfica last week.

Busquets will miss Barcelona's home match against Celtic on Oct. 23 and the return in Scotland on Nov. 7.

UEFA says he can appeal the disciplinary panel ruling within three days.

Busquets was shown a straight red card by referee Cuneyt Cakir for an aggressive 88th-minute challenge on Benfica captain Maxi Pereira.
