Reuters reported that the announcement would involve a smaller fine than the two previous penalties levied on the search behemoth.
In July last year, the EU fined Google €4.3 billion for allegedly breaching anti-trust rules over its Android mobile operating system. Google has challenged this fine.
In June 2017, Google was fined €2.42 billion for allegedly abusing its search engine dominance to give illegal advantage to its own comparison shopping service. The company has appealed against this fine too.
The EU investigation against AdSense was opened in 2016, with allegations that Google was preventing third parties who were using AdSense from showing advertisements from firms that were in competition with Google.
At that time Google had about 80% of the European search advertising market and the EU claimed the company had been indulging in such practices for more than a decade.
Brussels is not the only one to fine Google for anti-business practices. In February 2017, the Competition Commission of India fined the company 135.86 crore rupees (about US$21.1 million) for "abusing its dominant position in online general Web search and Web search advertising services in India".
The EU's actions against Google may not end with the AdSense fine. Its anti-trust enforcers are inquiring from Google's rivals if the company demotes local search competitors and this could well result in a fourth fine.
