For now, it's unclear whether similar sanctions will follow in the domestic competitions. Barca have got eight more league games to play this term, and they still stand a chance to be crowned champions.

The clubs consist of Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Manchester United, Juventus, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and AC Milan.
