Soccer-Besiktas out of Europe after CAS upholds ban

ISTANBUL, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Turkish club Besiktas has been excluded from the Europa League this season after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld a UEFA-imposed one-year ban from European competition for match-fixing, CAS said on Friday.

Playing under appeal against the original ban, Besiktas beat Norway’s Tromso 2-0 on Thursday in the second leg of their Europa League playoff, winning the tie 3-2 on aggregate. (Writing by Daren Butler; Editing by John O‘Brien)
