Uefa has confirmed that Bayern Munich are appealing Franck Ribery's three-match European ban.
The Frenchman must serve a suspension after being sent off in the first leg of Bayern's UEFA Champions League semi-final against Lyon.
He saw red during that encounter for treading on the foot of Lisandro Lopez, but protested his innocence at the time and has continued to do so since.
Ribery was forced to sit out the return date of the crunch European clash as a result of his dismissal, watching on from the sidelines as an Ivica Olic hat-trick booked Bayern a spot in the final.
The highly-rated playmaker is now desperate to feature in the showpiece fixture against Italian giants Inter Milan at Santiago Bernabeu on 22nd May.
For now, though, his fate rests in the hands of European football's governing body.
Ribery still has two games left to serve of his initial ban and Uefa could uphold that ruling.
However, Bayern are hoping they will agree to relax their stance, releasing their star man for duty in the biggest game of the season.
The hearing will take place on Wednesday 5th May, when Ribery will be accompanied by club directors to give his version of events.
