City were about a minute late in returning to the pitch after half-time in the first leg in Lisbon on March 8.

Astonishingly, the fine is greater than the 20,000 euros (£16,500) Porto were fined after their fans racially abused City players during their last 32 tie the previous month.

City cannot appeal their fine.
