Three Serie A clubs, Atalanta, Novara and Siena, are among 22 Italian clubs facing investigations over possible mach-fixing.

The former European Cup finalists Sampdoria, now playing in Serie B, were also named along with 52 players by the Italian federation (FIGC) yesterday. They have been referred to the FIGC's disciplinary committee.

FIGC listed 33 matches, nearly all in Serie B but including two in the Coppa Italia, as being under suspicion of manipulation over the last few seasons. Atalanta's former captain Cristiano Doni, already banned over match-fixing, is among the players listed in the latest investigation.
