Uefa has fined Lyon captain Juninho and fellow Brazilian Cris for deliberately getting booked in a Champions League group match.
The duo committed the offence in the game at Fiorentina on 25th November in order to serve a suspension before the knockout phase.
Midfielder Juninho was fined €10,000 (£8,900) and defender Cris €15,000 (£13,300) by Uefa's disciplinary panel.
Juninho and Cris have three days to appeal the decision.
Lyon booked a place in the last 16 of the competition after finishing second to Bayern Munich in Group F.
