The volatile Swede was sent off in the last 16 first leg match with Valencia after lunging at full back Andres Guardado with his studs up in PSG's 2-1 victory in Spain. He served the first match of the ban in the second leg.

PSG host the first leg of their quarter-final tie on April 2 with the return in Barcelona on April 10.
