NYON, Switzerland -- UEFA has fined Malmo 100,000 euros for a sub-standard playing surface in the Champions League.
UEFA says its disciplinary panel cited "the poor condition of the pitch at the club's three home group stage matches."
Juventus players raised concerns about the Swedbank Stadium turf before their 2-0 win on Nov. 26.
The match was played three weeks after the spring-to-autumn Swedish season ended.
UEFA says half of Malmo's fine is deferred for a two-year probationary period.
