The UEFA Appeals Body has announced its decisions in the appeals case relating to the UEFA Champions League Group G game between AFC Ajax and Real Madrid CF in Amsterdam on Tuesday 23 November.

The Appeals Body has decided as follows:

• Real Madrid CF are now fined €100,000 instead of €120,000.
• Coach José Mourinho is now fined €30,000 instead of €40,000.
• José Mourinho is now suspended for one match – Wednesday's Group G fixture between Madrid and AJ Auxerre – instead of the initial suspension of one game with a second game deferred for a probationary period of three years.
• The fines handed down by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body to the Madrid players Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos (€20,000 each), Iker Casillas (€10,000) and Jerzy Dudek (€5,000) remain the same. The one-match suspensions issued to Alonso and Ramos also stand.
