The striker was sent off in the first leg against the Colombians for slapping an opponent.

CONMEBOL confirmed the player would be banned for three games – but the suspension will only apply to continental competitions.

The Peruvian who has already missed the second leg against Once Caldas, will also miss two group games against Sao Paulo and San Lorenzo.
