Liberato Cacace has been handed a two-match suspension by the A-League's match review panel after the Wellington fullback was sent off during his side's loss to Sydney FC on Sunday.

The independent panel found the Phoenix youngster's challenge to be of "serious foul play", doubling the mandatory one-match straight red card ban.

The young New Zealander has until 2.00pm Tuesday (AEDT) to refer the matter for a hearing by the disciplinary and ethics committee.
