Vegalta Sendai striker Wilson will serve out the remainder of his two-match ban for Saturday’s away game to Yokohama F. Marinos after being sent off in the Asian Champions League, the J. League said Friday.

Wilson was handed the ban by the Asian Football Confederation after he was dismissed in the late stages of a 2-1 defeat at home to China’s Jiangsu Sainty in their final ACL game in Group E on May 1, a result that eliminated Sendai in its debut in the competition.

The Brazilian served the first match of his suspension on May 6 in a 2-0 win at Nagoya Grampus.
