The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has turned down Metalist Kharkiv’s appeal against their disqualification from all UEFA competitions this season.
On Wednesday, UEFA banned Metalist from taking part in their upcoming Champions League play-off against Schalke for their alleged involvement in a case of match-fixing that dates back to April 19, 2008.
