UEFA banned City from European football for the next two seasons but the Premier League side appealed the decision, taking it to the CAS. 

Following a virtual hearing due to the coronavirus pandemic, the CAS will reveal the outcome on Monday morning. 

The possibilities include the two-year ban being held, meaning City would miss the next two editions of the Champions League, it reduced to one season, or it wiped out. 

City's punishment from UEFA related to alleged Financial Fair Play breaches. As well as the ban, they were also fined 30 million euros. 

Uefa said at the time: “The Adjudicatory Chamber, having considered all the evidence, has found that Manchester City committed serious breaches of the Uefa Financial Fair Play Regulations by overstating its sponsorship revenue in its accounts and in the break-even information submitted to Uefa between 2012 and 2016.

“The Adjudicatory Chamber has also found that in breach of the regulations the club failed to cooperate in the investigation of this case by the CFCB.”
