The games Casemiro will miss for Man Utd after receiving second red card of the season

Manchester United star Casemiro is set to receive a lengthy four-match ban after being sent off against Southampton. But which games will he miss?

The Brazilian was shown a red card on VAR review for a high tackle on Carlos Alcaraz, after originally being shown a yellow card by referee Anthony Taylor.

He was clearly emotional upon leaving the pitch, with team-mate Antony having to console him as he walked back to the dressing room.

It is the second red card in just over a month for the 31-year-old, who was also given his marching orders for an incident during United's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace in February.



He missed three games on that occasion, with his latest transgression meaning he will now sit out United's next four fixtures.

The games Man Utd star Casemiro will miss

Casemiro will miss United's upcoming Premier League fixtures against Newcastle, Brentford and Everton if the club lose an anticipated appeal to have the red card overturned.


He will also be unavailable for his side's FA Cup quarter-final clash against Fulham.

Crucially, however, he will be available to take on Real Betis in the second leg of the Red Devils' Europa League last 16 tie. That match takes place on Thursday.

Because the red card was shown in a domestic competition, Casemiro's ban will not carry over to UEFA competitions.

But his unavailability for Premier League matches will be a significant blow for United, even though their title hopes are now effectively over. Ten Hag's are 16 points behind leaders Arsenal with 12 games to play, although they do have a game in hand.


Possible replacements for the Brazilian include Fred, Scott McTominay and Marcel Sabitzer.

Here is the list of games - and their dates and times - that Casemiro will miss for United:

  • March 19 - Manchester United vs Fulham (FA Cup Quarter-Final)
  • April 2 - Newcastle vs Manchester United (Premier League)
  • April 5 - Manchester United vs Brentford (Premier League)
  • April 8 - Manchester United vs Everton (Premier League)
