Blow for Arsenal as UEFA suspends Alexandre Lacazette

Alexandre Lacazette will miss both of Arsenal’s last-16 Europa League games against Ligue 1 side Rennes through suspension.

The French forward was sent off in the first leg of the Gunners surprise 1-0 loss against Belarusian side Bate Borisov in their Europa League last-32 tie.

Lacazette was given his marching orders after elbowing Aleksandar Filipovic late in the clash.

The 27-year-old has already served one match but will now be suspended for a further two matches after the decision by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB).
