Lausanne - UEFA ruled on Friday that Legia Warsaw fans will not be allowed to attend their upcoming Champions League match away to Borussia Dortmund on November 22 after Polish supporters clashed with police in Madrid last month.

Legia had already been forced to host Real Madrid behind closed doors for the return meeting in Warsaw on November 2 due to previous crowd disturbances during September's 6-0 thrashing at home to Dortmund.

Thirteen Legia fans were then held following clashes with police outside the Santiago Bernabeu stadium as Real won 5-1 on October 18.

As a result, UEFA has banned Legia from selling tickets to the club's away supporters for their next European match and hit them with another fine of €80 000 ($87 000).

The Polish team could face a further two-game punishment for any recurring trouble, with the additional sanction deferred for a probationary period of one year.

Legia are bottom of Group F with just one point from four matches.
