As a rule, a player or a team official sent off from the field of play and/or its immediate surrounds, including the technical area, is automatically suspended for the next match in the competition. In case of serious offences, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body is entitled to augment this punishment, including by extending it to other competitions.
In case of repeated cautions, players and team officials are suspended for the next competition match after three cautions, as well as following any subsequent odd-numbered caution (fifth, seventh, etc.).
Exceptionally, all yellow cards expire on completion of the quarter-finals. They are not carried forward to the semi-finals.
After a team's elimination, cautions and pending yellow-card suspensions expire and are not carried forward.
A pending red-card suspension that cannot be served during the current competition is carried forward to the next UEFA club competition match(es) for which the player would be otherwise eligible.
