NYON, Switzerland (AP) -- UEFA will consider extending Zlatan Ibrahimovic's suspension in the Champions League after the Paris Saint-Germain forward was ejected against Valencia.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel will hear the case Feb. 27.

Ibrahimovic is automatically suspended for the March 6 rematch in Paris as punishment for his red card in stoppage time in Tuesday's 2-1 win in the first leg of the round of 16.

UEFA can punish him further if the panel decides the offense was "assaulting another player.''

Ibrahimovic lunged to tackle Andres Guardado and appeared to go over the ball and stamp on the Valencia midfielder's foot.

In a similar case in 2010, Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery missed the Champions League final when UEFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld his three-match ban.
