UEFA has suspended Jesús Manuel Corona for the round of 16 Champions League match against Roma.

Tecatito Corona's suspension comes after UEFA considered that the Mexican striker forced the yellow card in the game against Schalke 04 at the group stage match.

According to the organism, Corona forced the card to erase his account for the coming stage. Even though he already missed the game against Galatasaray on the Date 6 of Group Stage, Tecatito didn't count on the fact that this action could get him a longer suspension.

Corona won't be able to play in the first leg of the round of 16 vs. Roma at the Olympic Stadium on February 12, so he will have to wait until March 6 at the Dragon Stadium where Porto will face Roma for the second leg match.

Sérgio Conceição, Porto's coach, was not happy with the UEFA decision: "They read the players mind, in time we will talk about that situation, but it is true that he is out of the game with Rome."
