The Turks had appealed the yellow card the striker picked up in the first leg Champions League quarter-final last week, in the hope that it would be annulled, his suspension lifted and that he would be able to play in Tuesday night's second leg.

UEFA also confirmed that Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos will not be punished further for the suspicion of deliberately invoking suspensions for the second leg.
