Turkish club Besiktas have lost an appeal against a European ban after involvement in domestic match-fixing.The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld a UEFA-imposed one-year ban which will see the club excluded from the Europa League this season.Norwegian side Tromso will take their place in the group stages, despite losing to them in Thursday’s play-off.Turkey’s Fenerbahce will be replaced by Cypriots APOEL after also losing an appeal against a ban for match-fixing.Fenerbahce were due to enter the Europa League after their Champions League final qualifying-round defeat by Arsenal, but a ruling on Thursday now means they are barred.They have also been suspended from next season’s Champions League qualifiers. Besiktas were initially banned by UEFA from participating after allegations of match-fixing in their 2011 Turkish Cup final win over Buyuksehir Belediyespor.They were temporarily reinstated while their appeal was heard by Cas, but the Swiss-based body has now confirmed Besiktas will not compete in the second-tier continental competition this season.“Cas has today dismissed the appeal filed by Besiktas JK against the decision taken by UEFA to exclude it from the European Europa League 2013-14,” read a statement.“Due to the urgency of the matter, the panel has issued its decision without the grounds. The full, reasoned award will be issued as soon as possible.”Playing under appeal, Besiktas beat Tromso 2-0 on Thursday in the second leg of their Europa League play-off, winning the tie 3-2 on aggregate.

“These are two incredibly talented players,” Steinbrenner said. “We talked about it and discussed it and opinions varied on both players, but I really felt our need — if we’re going to go out and spend hundreds of millions of dollars — our need was pitching. Because in my opinion — and people might disagree with me — that’s the reason we didn’t make it to the ALCS — or the biggest reason we didn’t. …“We were active. But, again, we were active not spending all that money on one individual, but spending it on numerous parts in a real area of need as far as we were concerned.”These new spending habits have taken some getting used to for Yankees fans, but the new approach may be what keeps New York in the World Series conversation for the next several years. 💙 of the order. pic.twitter.com/aybEXjtqJi— New York Yankees (@Yankees) March 19, 2019The Yankees reportedly have begun extension talks with both shortstop Didi Gregorius and reliever Dellin Betances.Betances, 30, is coming off an up-and-down season in which he posted a 2.70 ERA while striking out 115 batters in 66 2/3 innings, but he is a vital cog in the Yankees bullpen. While Gregorius, 29, started 130 games during the regular season last year, hitting .268/.335/.494 with 27 home runs and 86 RBIs.Key cogs like Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres are likely next in line for new deals after Betances and Gregorius.Judge appeared on the show Monday and indicated there have been no talks between him and the club regarding an extension. But considering Judge’s age (26), monstrous production and meager salary to date (scheduled to make $684,300 in 2019), the club will likely hand the towering outfielder a nine-figure contract — something Steinbrenner actively avoided this offseason with Machado and Harper.

In addition to a handful of mid-tier signings like Adam Ottavino and Zack Britton, general manager Brian Cashman locked up Luis Severino (four years, $40 million) and Aaron Hicks (seven years, $70 million) with substantial extensions.With a talented core of players in-house, team owner Hal Steinbrenner hinted at the real possibility of more extensions on the “The Michael Kay Show” on Monday saying: “More to come … stay tuned.” Related News MLB 2019 preview: Projecting the AL East
