Soccer-Fenerbahce out of Europe after CAS upholds ban (Reuters)

ISTANBUL, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Turkish side Fenerbahce will be unable to compete in the Europa League this season after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld a UEFA-imposed two-year ban from European competition over a match-fixing scandal on Wednesday. Playing under appeal against the original ban, Fenerbahce were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal in the second leg of a Champions League playoff on Tuesday, losing 5-0 on aggregate, but will not be able to compete in the Europa League following the CAS ruling.
