Boateng Receives Two-Match Ban for Red Card Against Hamburger SV

The German center back will miss the season finale and next season's opener

Stuart Franklin

The DFB took action against Jérôme Boateng on Monday, banning the center back for two Bundesliga matches.

The sporting court of the Deutscher Fußball Bund (DFB) has allocated Jerome Boateng with a two match ban in a single judge action following an indictment through the DFB supervisory committee concerning assault against the opponent in an easy case after a scienter sport-adverse action beforehand. In addition, Boateng is banned for all of his clubs other championship games until the end of his suspension.


The player and accordingly the club have agreed to the ruling. The ruling is thus valid.


Referee Marco Fritz sent Boateng off in the 86th minute of Saturday's match for going after Kerem Derimbay, becoming the third player in two weeks to receive a suspension for attacking an opponent's face. Rafinha recieved a three match ban for his assault on Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Franck Ribéry faces a UEFA ban for his actions against Daniel Carvajal.

The suspension eliminates Boateng from the Bundesliga finale against VfB Stuttgart as well as the opener of the 2014/15 Bundesliga season. He is still entitled to play in the DFB-Pokal Final against Borussia Dortmund, according to the club website.

With Boateng absent, Pep Guardiola will have to chose between Javi Martínez and Daniel van Buyten to play next to Dante. Van Buyten could very well get the nod in what could be his final home game in a Bayern uniform. Holger Badstuber, who trained fully on Monday, could also figure into the mix as well.
