Club in match-fix probe out of Champions League
Istanbul: Turkish champion Fenerbahce has been removed from the Champions League because of an ongoing match-fixing investigation.
Turkey`s Football Federation says it has withdrawn Fenerbahce after meetings on Wednesday.
Fenerbahce`s removal comes 24 hours before it was to take its place among 32 elite European clubs in the group stage draw being conducted in Monaco.
It is unclear how UEFA will choose a team to replace Fenerbahce, which is suspected of fixing matches to win the title last season.
Runner-up Trabzonspor was eliminated in the Champions League qualifying rounds but has also been implicated in the match-fixing probe.
