AC Milan have launched an appeal against UEFA´s decision to ban goalkeeper Dida for two Champions League games.

The Brazilian was punished for breaching UEFA´s "principles of loyalty, integrity and sportsmanship" for his theatrics after being hit by a Celtic fan in the Champions League encounter at Parkhead earlier this month.

If the suspension is upheld, Dida will miss the back-to-back Champions League games against Shakhtar Donetsk, the first of which will be held at the San Siro next Wednesday.
