"Following an appeal by FK Partizan, the chairman of UEFA's Appeals Body has granted a delaying effect in the Serbian club's disciplinary case," European soccer's governing body said in a statement.

"The decision means the UEFA Appeals Body can examine the case, consider the parties' arguments and rule on the merits of the case by August 16, when the second qualifying round first-leg matches are scheduled to take place."
