Chelsea FC goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon has been suspended for one UEFA competition match by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body, and will not be able to sit on the bench at tonight's UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg against SL Benfica in London.

Lollichon was dismissed from the dugout for dissent during last week's first leg in Lisbon, which Chelsea won 1-0. An appeal may be lodged against the verdict within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decision.
