Manchester City defender Kyle Walker will remain suspended for three Champions League games after the club lost an appeal against the length of his ban.
Walker was shown a straight red card for a kick on Andre Silva in City’s defeat by RB Leipzig in December.
Uefa deemed the foul to be “assault” which resulted in a three-match suspension instead of the automatic one-match ban for a sending-off.
Walker has already missed one game.
The 31-year-old sat out the first leg of City’s last-16 tie with Sporting Lisbon, which they won 5-0.
He will also miss the return in Manchester on Wednesday, 9 March and the first leg of a likely quarter-final in April.
