Fenerbache to play match behind closed doors

The Turkish football club Fenerbahce must play their next home Europa League game behind closed doors after fans threw fireworks and missiles onto the pitch against Borussia Moenchengladbach in December.

UEFA's disciplinary tribunal also fined Fenerbahce 80 thousand dollars for the trouble in a match which the Bundesliga side won 3-0.

UEFA said there were similar incidents at Fenerbahce's Champions League playoff tie at home to Spartak Moscow in August.

Fenerbahce will serve the ban in the round-of-32 second leg match against Belarus side BATE Borisov on February 21st.
