The Uruguay striker was given the suspension after he bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

A subsequent appeal was rejected by FIFA but CAS will now consider the case.

Barcelona paid Liverpool £75m for Suarez but he is currently banned from even training with his new team-mates.

The 27-year-old is due to return to action at the end of October for ‘El Clasico' against Real Madrid but may return sooner if the appeal is successful.
