Football News
Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard has been banned from the touchline for two Champions League matches.

The penalty is punishment for "improper conduct" by the Dutchman following his dismissal in the 2-2 Group E draw in Lyon on November 27.

Rijkaard will only have to sit in the stands for one match - Barca´s first in the knockout stage - after his automatic suspension meant he did not sit in the dugout for the final pool game against Stuttgart last Wednesday.
