UEFA have banned Arsenal striker Eduardo for two Champions League matches for diving to earn a penalty during last week's qualifying match against Glasgow Celtic.

The Europe's governing body said the Croatian forward deceived the referee when he got the penalty decision after a challenge by Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc.

Eduardo scored from the spot kick and Arsenal won the match 3-1, progressing to the group stage 5-1 on aggregate.

Arsenal and Eduardo have three days to lodge an appeal against the decision.

Should the ban stand, Eduardo will miss the Gunners' matches away at Standard Li├Ęge on September 16 and the Emirates showdown with Olympiakos on September 29.
