Ibra to discover fate

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will learn today whether he has been suspended for the Milan derby after picking up a red card against Bari on Sunday.

The Sweden international appeared to slap Bari defender Marco Rossi in the gut and received a straight red for unsporting behaviour.

Serie A's disciplinary commissioner will decide whether to follow the line indicated by the referee Christian Brighi and punish Ibrahimovic with a two-match ban.

However, there is a possibility that the incident will be reviewed. In which case if the slap is considered violent conduct, Ibrahimovic will be ruled out for three games.

Either way, it is unlikely that Ibrahimovic will escape punishment and be available for the Derby della Madonnina, which takes place in two games' time.

La Gazzetta dello Sport understands Milan will appeal the decision whatever the outcome.
