A decision on Azerbaijani national team player Mahir Emreli, who was sent off in the first round of the UEFA Nations League home match against Luxembourg, will be made next week.

This was reported by the continental football body, Offsideplus.az reports. The 23-year-old striker's case will be considered at a meeting of the UEFA Disciplinary Committee on 22 September. The decision will be made public a few days after the decision.

Mahir Emreli was sent off in the 26th minute of the match against Luxembourg for hitting his opponent. For this reason, the Qarabag footballer automatically missed the away match against Cyprus in the second round of the League of Nations. Although the Azerbaijani team lost to Luxembourg 1: 2, it managed to beat Cyprus - 1: 0.
