Thomas Müller to miss Liverpool clash after appeal rejected

Bayern Munich will reportedly be without Thomas Müller for both legs of their Champions League clash against Liverpool.

Müller was handed a two-match suspension for his red card against Ajax in December, after kung-fu kicking Nicolás Tagliafico.

The Bundesliga champions were keen to appeal the suspension, but according to Sportbild reporter Christian Falk, saw their arguments rejected.

Bayern travel to Anfield on February 19, before hosting Liverpool back in Bavaria on March 13.
