Diego Simeone will watch the Europa League final from the stands after the Atletico Madrid manager was handed a four-game touchline ban by UEFA.
Simeone's suspension includes one match which has already been served - the La Liga side's 1-0 victory against Arsenal in the Europa League semi-final second-leg on Thursday, while he has also been fined $10,000.
The Argentine coach was sent off during the first leg after just 12 minutes of the first leg at Emirates Stadium last week after insulting a match official and for improper conduct. A $10,000 fine has been handed for their fans throwing objects in London.
Atletico have also been charged after stairways were found to be blocked at the Wanda Metropolitano on Thursday, where Diego Costa's goal saw the two-time Europa League winners progress 2-1 on aggregate.
The charge will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on May 31.
Atletico will meet Marseille in the Europa League final on May 16 after the French side edged past Red Bull Salzburg 3-2 on aggregate thanks to an extra-time goal from substitute Rolando in Austria.
