Benfica midfielder Augustin Binya has been banned for six Uefa matches following
his dangerous challenge on Celtic's Scott Brown.

The Cameroon international was sent off late in his side's 1-0 Champions League
defeat in Glasgow.

Scotland international Brown avoided injury but was angry with Binya, who later
issued an apology.

Uefa's control and disciplinary body announced their verdict after deliberating the
case on Thursday.

In a statement on, Binya's challenge was described as one
which "seriously endangered the physical health of the opposing player".

Benfica can appeal against the decision, however if they are unsuccessful Binya
will miss Benfica's remaining Champions League Group D matches against AC
Milan and Shakhtar Donetsk.

Benfica will then have to cope without Binya for their next four matches in Europe.

The ban will carry over to future seasons if Benfica finish bottom of Group D and
bow out for this campaign.

Good stuff! I was suprised that Scott Brown didnt get his leg broke, Lucky not too! I think its a fair result!
If you see the replay he had actually gone down on his left knee and had his right leg stick out - if he was moving forward with his leg like this - that challenge would have snapped his leg like a twig !!

This animal rom Benfica could have finished his career !!

And he gets a nice little 6 match ban ????

He has got off lightly for that !!
