UEFA has officially given Nicolò Barella a two-match ban, so the Inter midfielder will miss both games against Liverpool in the Champions League.
As expected, the governing body of European football has punished the Italy international with a two-match after receiving a straight red card in the final Champions League group stage game against Real Madrid in December.
eports in Italy had claimed Barella would have received a two-match ban and UEFA has not confirmed the midfielder’s suspension.
La Gazzetta dello Sport confirms Inter won’t appeal the decision.
Inter have qualified for the Champions League round of 16 for the first time in ten years.
They had been drawn with Ajax but were then paired against Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in the infamous redraw in December.
The Serie A champions will host Liverpool at San Siro on February 16 and will visit Anfield Road on March 8.
Joaquin Correa will also miss the first game in Milan due to a flexor injury.
