Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi facing lengthy UEFA ban

Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi is facing a UEFA ban.

Both De Rossi and Emerson Palmieri were sent off for straight red cards during the 3-0 Champions League play-off defeat to Porto.

De Rossi's foul was considered more dangerous, having forced Maxi Pereira to undergo surgery with a two-month lay-off.

As he was also the captain in that game, De Rossi will be handed a three-match ban by UEFA.

Emerson Palmieri receives a two-game suspension and both will have to be implemented in the Europa League.
