UEFA Dismisses Irregular Betting Claims In Lyon Match

I am sure like me, many of you were surprised when you saw the result of Wednesday’s Champions League match between French side Olympique Lyon and Dinamo Zagreb of Croatia.

However, it is now emerging that Olympique Lyon’s 7-1 drubbing of Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League on Wednesday could have been as a result of a betting scandal.

UEFA are said to be investigating the matter but intial reports have not shown any irregular betting patterns. In the other Group D fixture between Real Madrid and Ajax in Netherlands, the hosts saw two of their goals controversially ruled out raising fears that the matches had been fixed.
