Star forwards Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku have avoided extra suspensions following their tussle in the Milan derby Italian Cup quarter-final last week, an Italian sports court said on Friday.
Both players have each received a one-game ban.
AC Milan’s Ibrahimovic was dismissed for a second yellow card after the head-to-head confrontation with Inter Milan’s Lukaku, who was also booked.
As Lukaku had already been booked in the competition, he misses Tuesday’s semi-final with Juventus through an accumulation of cards.
Inter Milan had progressed 2-1 from the fiery last eight clash with their city rivals.
Ibrahimovic received the standard ban for a red card which will apply for the next Italian Cup match he could play.
Sweden’s Ibrahimovic also denied racism played a part in the incident, tweeting: “In Zlatan’s world there is no place for racism.”(dpa/NAN)
