Ibrahimovic, who had been booked earlier in the match, was given a straight red card for hitting Marco Rossi in the 73rd minute of Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Bari after the defender beat him to a header.
In recent weeks, Ibrahimovic has been a shadow of the player who was destroying defences earlier in the season, and he has came under a lot of criticism for his performance against Spurs in the Champions League.
Nevertheless this is a huge blow to Milan’s title hopes. Milan currently holds a five-point lead over Inter with nine matches remaining. In addition to the Milan derby, Ibra will moss the matches against Palermo and Fiorentina.
