UEFA says footie game was fixed

Uefa has sent Cyprus repeated notifications concerning suspicious betting activity (CNA)

European football governing body UEFA has notified the island’s association about suspicious betting activity that indicated match-fixing during a first division game last month.

UEFA said the January 31, game between Ethnikos Achnas and Aris, which finished 4-0 to the away team, had all the hallmarks of match-fixing.

The governing body said Ethnikos was responsible.

The report said there was heavy betting before and during the game on Ethnikos losing with a difference of at least two goals and that four goals would be scored.

The betting activity before the game showed that people knew the result beforehand, UEFA said.

The report was handed over to the CFA’s disciplinary board. It was the first so-called red file this season, as strict measures were put in place to combat match-fixing.
