Zlatan Ibrahimovic handed one-match ban over Chelsea red card

Paris: 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.
