Bayern Munich said Friday they will appeal the two-match Champions League suspension handed to Thomas Mueller which means the Germany international will miss both legs of their last-16 tie against Liverpool.
Mueller apologised following the sending-off, insisting he meant to kick the ball.
Mueller has five goals and six assists in 25 matches in all competitions this season.
Like Mueller, Ajax midfielder Maximilian Woeber has also been given a two-match suspension for his horror tackle, in the same game, on Bayern's Leon Goretzka which also led to the Austrian international being shown a straight red.
Woeber will miss both legs of Ajax's last-16 tie against holders Real Madrid.
