UEFA says Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is suspended from the Super Cup game against Real Madrid and a Champions League group-stage game. The defender was brought in last season and has performed exceptionally well under Jose Mourinho's Red Devils. 

UEFA's disciplinary panel imposed a three-match ban for violent conduct after Bailly was sent off late in United's Europa League semi-final, second-leg game against Celta Vigo in May.

Bailly missed his team's 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final when serving the first game of the ban.

United faces Champions League winner Madrid on August 8 in Skopje, Macedonia.

The Champions League group stage begins in September and United will know its first opponent when the draw is made in Monaco on Aug. 24.
