Liverpool’s Andy Robertson banned in the Champions League


Andy Robertson’s Champions League ban

Liverpool’s win at Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday ended on a bum note.

In the final minutes of the match Andy Robertson was booked.

Robertson was cautioned after a foul on Leon Goretzka.

The Scottish left-back mistimed a challenge in the Liverpool half which sent Goretzka crashing to the deck.

That booking means that Robertson will be banned for Liverpool’s Champions League quarterfinal first leg.

For the record, had Robertson avoided a booking in Germany, his yellow cards would have been scraped by virtue of reaching the final eight.

To be clear, all players who have qualified for the final eight of the Champions League are given a clean slate regarding bookings picked up earlier in the tournament.
