Uefa will not investigate Lyons win
Friday 09 December 2011
Uefa has ruled out opening an investigation at this stage into Lyons' 7-1 Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb after their own Betting Fraud Detection System did not pick up any irregular betting patterns surrounding the match.
Lyons have backed the decision of the French online gaming authority to run checks on bets placed on the result, which in combination with Ajax's 3-0 defeat to Real Madrid was enough to take the French club into the last 16, overturning a goal difference of seven between the clubs.
Uefa has yet to receive reports from the match referee or match delegate but says at this stage it has not seen anything which warrants further investigation.
