Fenerbahce faces sanctions from UEFA after breaching its Financial Fair Play (FFP) agreement in 2018-19.

The Super Lig giant signed a settlement agreement in May 2016, but UEFA's Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) said on Friday the club failed to meet its break-even target.

The CFCB has consequently referred Fenerbahce to its adjudicatory chamber, which could lead to a ban from European competition.

Meanwhile, Porto will operate under transfer restrictions and a limitation on its European squad size, having "partially fulfilled" its targets.

Galatasaray and Maccabi Tel Aviv were deemed to be in compliance and will stay in the settlement regime.
