BRUSSELS, Mar 15 (Reuters): Alphabet unit Google is likely to be hit with a third EU antitrust fine next week related to its AdSense advertising service, a person familiar with the matter said on Friday, with the sanction expected to be much smaller than previous fines.

The European Commission in 2016 opened a third case against the world's most popular internet search engine by accusing Google of preventing third parties using its AdSense product from displaying search advertisements from Google's competitors.
