However, Bayern have said they will appeal against the decision.
Muller was shown a straight red card — the first of his career — after catching Tagliafico with a head-high challenge.
Afterwards the 29-year-old said sorry via Twitter, writing: “‘I would like to apologise to Nico Tagliafico for yesterday’s incident. It was unintentional. Get well soon.”
Bayern travel to Anfield for the first leg on February 19th, with the return in Munich on March 13th.
