Turkish sides Fenerbahce and Besiktas are banned from competing in the Champions League and Europa League respectively because of match-fixing allegations.

Turkish sides Fenerbahce and Besiktas have been banned from taking part in football in Europe because of match-fixing allegations, UEFA has announced.

Fenerbahce have been removed from next season's Champions League while Besiktas will not take part in the Europa League.

Fener are banned from Europe for three seasons in total, with the third deferred for a probationary period of five years.

It is their second exclusion from Europe's top competition after they were banned from the 2011-12 Champions League, also because of match-fixing.
