Nyon, Switzerland:

UEFA says its disciplinary panel will decide Chelsea captain John Terry's punishment after he was ejected for violent conduct against Barcelona in the Champions League semifinals on Tuesday.

Terry gets a mandatory one-match ban and misses the May 19 final in Munich.

UEFA rules allow its disciplinary body to extend the sanction, which will apply next season in Super Cup, Champions League or Europa League matches.

The panel is scheduled to meet on May 24.

Four Chelsea players are suspended for the final, against Bayern Munich or Real Madrid.

Branislav Ivanovic, Raul Meireles and Ramires get one-match bans for receiving their third bookings in the competition.

Chelsea scored twice without Terry to draw 2-2, and advance 3-2 on aggregate.
