Malaga set for CAS verdict today

Malaga are reportedly anticipating a decision from the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) today on their appeal against a UEFA ban.

Last week saw the Anchovies travel out to Lausanne, Switzerland to put forward a final appeal to CAS with regards their season long ban from UEFA club competition.

The European game’s governing body handed the club the 12-month suspension in December for ‘overdue payables’ – money owed.

Malaga will, according to Cadena SER, find out by mid-afternoon this Tuesday whether their appeal has been successful.

If the suspension is upheld, their Europa League spot will go to the team that finished next highest in La Liga.

However, that is Rayo Vallecano, who currently are also banned from Europe having had an application and initial appeal for a UEFA licence turned down, so it will bring ninth placed Sevilla into the competition.
