Chelsea captain John Terry has been suspended for three European fixtures following his red card against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final.
UEFA’s disciplinary panel found the centre-back guilty of violent conduct for striking his knee into Barca forward Alexis Sanchez at the Camp Nou in April.
Terry will miss just the first two games of Chelsea’s European campaign having already served a mandatory one-match ban after sitting out the Blues’ victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.
He is out of the Super Cup meeting with Europa League champions Atletico Madrid in August, and will also be unavailable for Chelsea’s opening Champions League group match.
Terry, who is currently preparing for Euro 2012 with the England squad, can contest the suspension at UEFA’s appeals panel.
