It is definitely a one game ban, but UEFA could extend that to two or three games.
Capello has said that he might not even start for the whole of the Euro’s due to his “temperament”
“UEFA’s policy is to automatically ban a player for one match after a red card, with a disciplinary panel convening to discuss any extra punishment on an individual basis. They will meet on Thursday to decide if Rooney’s kick at Miodrag Dzudovic warrants more than a standard one game suspension.”
UEFA have rejected the appeal by Wenger over his two match ban.
Arsene Wenger was seen communicating to the bench in the Udinese game at the Emirates where he was also banned.
Wenger has appealed the decision but UEFA have rejected meaning he will miss the first 2 UEFA Champions League Group Stage Games.
وقد تم طرد فناربخشه من الاتحاد الاوروبي من دوري ابطال اوروبا هذا الموسم
هذا يعني أنه إذا لم يكن ليتأهل ارسنال اليوم ، ثم ارسنال واودينيزي ستكون مرحلة المجموعات.
وسوف تفعل إذا ارسنال الفوز ضد اودينيزي التعادل من ليفربول في دوري ابطال اوروبا.
ولكن قد يكون من شأنها أن تعطى للمكان لفريق آخر في تركيا. انها لا تزال غير واضحة وسيكون لدينااستكمالا لهذا الوضع.
Fenerbahce were involved in match-fixing scandals last season. Uefa are yet to say who will replace them in tomorrow’s group stage draw.
Fenerbahce being expelled from Europe means the team ranked highest take their place – this means Arsenal are now in Europe no matter what.
This means that if Arsenal don’t qualify today, then Arsenal and Udinese will be the group stages.
If Arsenal do win their draw against Udinese than Liverpool will be in the Champions League.
But it may be that the place will be given to another team in Turkey. It is still unclear and we will have an update of this situation.
The only thing that is 100% clear is that Fenerbahce are no longer participating in the champions league this season.
I think what will happen is the place will be given to another team in Turkey.
The draw for the Uefa Champions League qualifying round has just began (11AM GMT, 1PM Mecca time)
You can watch the draw live at The Official Uefa Website
Some people falsely believe that Arsenal could play against “Lyon, Villereal and Bayern” But that is not the case as the only teams they can get are Rubin Kazan, Udinese, Odense, Twenteor FC Zürich.
I will update this post with live updates on every team, stay tuned
The draw for the Champions Route has been concluded and the matches are as follows
The draw has not been completed and the rest of the matches are :
In my opinion Lyon’s match will be the toughest for them as we all know going to russia to play Rubin isn’t such an easy job, Arsenal have drawn Udinese, a good team which has finished fourth in the Italian League last season but with little champions league experience. I don’t expect it to be easy as in football there are no easy game but we all expect Arsenal to go through.
But that might now be the case, Remember for those matches we will be without Robin Van Persie who got sent off in Barcelona, Nasri and Wenger too after “Rude” Comments to the referee after the Barcelona match.
So it might not be as easy as everyone expects…
I expect Villereal, Benfica, Arsenal, Bayern and Lyon to go through to the group stage after the two legged encounters. But not without a fight from the other teams. Lets hope for some great matches and some enjoyable action.
