Lovren accused Ramos of showing a lack of respect after Spain's 6-0 Nations League win over Croatia in September but there was already bad blood between them following the Real Madrid captain's controversial challenge on Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final, which escaped punishment but left the Egyptian with a dislocated shoulder.

Dejan Lovren's feud with Sergio Ramos has cost the Liverpool defender a one-match international ban from UEFA which means he will miss Croatia's first Euro 2020 qualifier against Azerbaijan in March.

There were also two-match UEFA club bans for Ajax's Maximilian Wober, Sihnevich Mikalai of BATE Borisov, Bayern's Thomas Muller and Villarreal player Costas Jorda Jaume for their straight red cards.

Having taunted each other in the build-up to November's return fixture in the Nations League, Lovren was captured on an Instagram live video goading the Spanish after the game, which Croatia won 3-2, and suggesting he had elbowed Ramos on purpose.

There were similar sanctions for poor crowd behaviour in European club games in November and December for AC Milan, Ajax, BATE Borisov, Bayern Munich, PAOK, Paris St Germain, Red Star Belgrade, Spartak Moscow and Villarreal.

Greece's Olympiacos will have to play two UEFA games behind closed doors for their fans' antics after the 3-1 win over Milan in December if they do it again in the next two years.

That was enough to attract a charge of "insulting" behaviour from UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body and on Friday the 29-year-old received a one-game ban "for the next UEFA national team competition for which he would be otherwise eligible".
