Carlo Ancelotti: Set to do without PSG's star striker for second leg against

The Swedish striker was sent off in the closing stages of PSG's win over Valencia in the Champions League for a challenge on Andres Guardado.

Ibrahimovic will miss the return leg in the French capital, and the first leg of the quarter-final, if PSG qualify.

UEFA had confirmed they had extended the initial one-match ban handed to the 31-year-old, drawing an angry response from the PSG manager who said the club was planning an appeal against the decision.

"I am surprised, but I was already surprised by the red card," said Ancelotti.

"To get a two-match ban is incredible and I hope UEFA go back on their decision.

"I really hope they will reverse it because to get two games is incredible. Yes, we will appeal."
