UEFA has banned Legia Warsaw from selling tickets for a Champions League match in Germany, in the latest round of punishments tied to violence by the club’s fans.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel acted on crowd disturbances at Legia’s 5-1 loss at Real Madrid last month.

Several Legia fans clashed with police outside the stadium.

UEFA says the club cannot sell its fan tickets for a Nov. 22 match at Borussia Dortmund. A ban on Legia fans for two more away matches in UEFA competitions was deferred for a one-year probationary period.

UEFA also fined the Polish champion 80,000 euros ($87,000) for the second time this season.

Legia hosted Madrid in an empty stadium last week after fan violence at the home game against Dortmund in September.
