Corruption dossier: Uefa look into match-fixing claims
Sunday 02 December 2007
Uefa have handed a 96-page report to Interpol alleging that 15 football matches were fixed. The games are believed to have been in the Champions' League, Uefa Cup and Intertoto Cup.
As the European governing body convened in Lucerne for today's draw for the Euro 2008 finals, an official said: "It's all based on betting patterns, nothing else, and this is what we set up our early warning systems to look for. There are no investigations into any qualifying matches for Euro 2008."
The matches took place after July 2005, with almost all the teams involved coming from Balkan and Baltic states.
