UEL: UEFA Clears Arsenal’s Lacazette To Face Rennes

Published

Arsenal striker, Alexander Lacazette, is available to play Rennes in the Europa League on Thursday after UEFA reduced his ban to two matches.

Naija News had reported that Lacazette was handed a three-game suspension, following his red card against BATE Borisov in the last round.

However, having sat out the second leg of that tie and a 3-1 defeat in France last week, Arsenal has seen an appeal reduce the suspension to just two games.

The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body’s decision read: “The appeal lodged by Arsenal FC has been partially upheld.

“To suspend the Arsenal FC player Alexandre Lacazette for two (2) UEFA competition matches for which he would be otherwise eligible for serious rough play.”
