Manchester City, who have outstanding business with Europe's governing body as they appeal against a two-year ban from European competition for breaches of Financial Fair Play regulations, have been fined 3,000 euros (£2,657) for a kit infringement in their match at Real Madrid on February 26.

City won the match 2-1 but are yet to play the second leg of the tie due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Club Brugge have been fined a total of 20,375 euros (£18,055) for the blocking of public passageways and the throwing of objects in the first leg on February 20, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Tottenham received a fine of 20,000 euros (£17,714) for causing the late kick-off in their 1-0 home defeat to RB Leipzig on February 19, with manager Jose Mourinho to be personally informed of the decision as the man responsible.

Leipzig were fined (£1,992) for the throwing of objects in the match in London, but received only a warning after coach Julian Nagelsmann was held responsible for a late kick-off in the reverse fixture on March 10, which the German side won 3-0 to advance 4-0 on aggregate.

Wolves have been fined 10,000 euros (£8,858) after being found responsible for the late kick-off in their Europa League match against Espanyol in Spain on February 27.
