Uefa has revealed it will not be introducing a yellow card amnesty after the quarter-finals of the Champions League despite appeals from Chelsea and Bayern Munich.

Both the World Cup and the European Championships currently involve a yellow card amnesty at the quarter-final stage, reducing the chances of players being suspended for the final.

However, European football's governing body has revealed it will not be introducing the system for at least another three years, on the morning six players set to miss the Champions League final through suspension were informed their bans would not be overturned.

Chelsea players Ramires, Raul Meireles and Branislav Ivanovic will all miss the match having picked up their third booking of the tournament in the semi-final against Barcelona, while Bayern Munich’s Luiz Gustavo, David Alaba and Holger Badstuber will also be suspended for the clash.
