The notification concerns the first division game between AEZ Limassol and AEK Larnaca, which the away team won 5-2.

The notification, from European football governing body Uefa, cited suspicious betting activity. According to the file, before the game, there had been a lot of betting on AEZ losing the game with a difference of at least three goals and that at least four goals would be scored.

This was the second notification involving AEZ.

The CFA had announced a series of measures to tackle the matter but none of the teams involved have been sanctioned so far.
