Match fixing probe in PSG win
Paris: French authorities are investigating potential match-fixing in Paris St-Germain’s 6-1 Champions League win over Red Star Belgrade this month.
A Red Star official allegedly placed a bet of almost 5m euros (FJ$13.9m) for the Serbian club to lose by five goals, reported French newspaper L’Equipe.
The French National Finance Prosecutor (PNF) is investigating the claims after being alerted by Uefa. Both clubs have denied any wrongdoing.
PSG are third in Champions League Group C, just behind Liverpool but level on three points after two games. Red Star (one point) are bottom of the group topped by Napoli (four).
