Fenerbahce, which was also fined €60,000 ($79,000), can appeal the latest sanctions to UEFA.

On a tough day for Fenerbahce at UEFA, the disciplinary panel also banned midfielder Raul Meireles for both matches against Czech side Plzen.

Meireles was sent off in the opening minutes of the first leg against BATE in Belarus and was automatically suspended for the return.

On Wednesday, the UEFA panel extended the Portugal midfielder's ban to three matches. The former Chelsea player also missed the Champions League final last season through suspension.
