Fenerbahce to play behind closed doors



Turkish 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 €40,000 for the trouble at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium on December 6 in a match which the Bundesliga side won 3-0.

"Fenerbahce were charged with the throwing of missiles and/or fireworks and with insufficient organisation," Uefa said in a statement.

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
