AC Milan to play Champions League

August 02, 2006 18:53 IST

AC Milan have been given the go-ahead to take part in this season's Champions League, UEFA announced on Wednesday.

Milan will face Cork City of Ireland or former champions Red Star Belgrade in the third qualifying round next week after UEFA's emergency panel decided they could play in Europe's premier club competition.

The six-times European champions were found guilty in the Serie A match-fixing probe but an Italian soccer appeals court adjudicating in the scandal reduced their initial punishment.

Milan, initially deducted 15 points, had the deficit cut to eight which enabled them to be included in last Friday's Champions League draw.
