UEFA have reduced on appeal a fine and two-match ban given to coach Jose Mourinho after allegations that two of his Real Madrid players engineered deliberate red cards in last month's Champions League game with Ajax.
UEFA cut the Portuguese's fine to €30,000 from €40,000 and Real's to €100,000 from €120,000.
They also reduced the coach's suspension to one match -- Wednesday's Group G game at home to Auxerre -- from the initial punishment of a one-game suspension and a second game deferred for a probationary period of three years.
