The incident with Tagliafico that saw Muller banned

The French giants ran the risk of being forced to play their next home European match - against Manchester United in the Champions League last 16-second leg in March - behind closed doors.

The Germany worldwide was sent off in Bayern's final Group E game - a 3-3 draw at Ajax last month - after a unsafe high challenge on Nicolas Tagliafico, which saw him catch his opponent with a boot to the head.

The panel added an extra game to the one-match ban for a straight red card.

Muller was sent off in Bayern's final group game against Ajax for a high challenge on Nicolas Tagliafico.

The sending-off was the first of Muller's career and after the incident he posted on social media: "I would like to apologise to Nico Tagliafico for the incident".

Meanwhile, Liverpool's Croatia Dejan Lovren defender has been banned for one global match over comments he made on social media about opponents Spain following his side's 3-2 Nations League win in November.

UEFA said that Lovren had fallen foul of a clause in its disciplinary rules which penalises anyone "whose conduct is insulting or otherwise violates the basic rules of decent conduct".

UEFA also threatened Eintracht with a one-game ban on selling tickets to an away game in the Champions League or Europa League in the next two years.
