Milan: AC Milan confirmed they will appeal against Italain striker Mario Balotelli`s three-match ban.

Balotelli received a red card for confronting the officials after Milan`s 1-2 loss to Napoli at home Sunday, reports Xinhua.

The disciplinary committee decided Monday to hand him a three-game suspension. The injury-depleted Rossoneri though, are going to appeal that decision.

A statement on their official website read Monday: "Milan announces that we will complain against the suspensions of Mario Balotelli and the Curva Sud stand."

The San Siro`s Curva Sud stand has been ordered to be closed for one match following incidents of racial abuse towards opposition fans during the Sunday game.
