UEFA overturn red card for AaB's Beauchamp

September 19, 2008

AaB Aalborg defender Michael Beauchamp has had his red card rescinded after he was incorrectly sent-off during the Champions League draw against Celtic on Wednesday night.

Beauchamp was the victim of mistaken identity when he was shown the red card for a foul on Georgios Samaras committed by his defensive partner Michael Jakobsen with 11 minutes to go.

Jakobsen has been handed a one-match ban instead, meaning he will miss AaB's next Champions League match against Manchester United in Denmark on September 30.
