PSG express 'stupefaction' after claims of Red Star Belgrade match-fixing

Authorities told to investigate possible match-fixing in Liverpool’s Champions League group

Brazilian superstar Neymar had scored a hat-trick in the match and goals from Angel di Maria, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe had given the Parisian club a 6-1 win with Marko Marin scoring the only goal for visitors.

"It is with the greatest anger and resentment that Red Star deny today's report in the French newspaper L'Équipe in connection to doubts about the outcome of the Paris Saint-Germain-Red Star match and the involvement of anyone from Red Star in possible improper actions".

It is claimed that, in the days leading up to the match, UEFA was informed that a senior figure at the Serbian club was planning on placing almost €5 million (£4.4 million) on his own team to lose by five goals.

It alleged that some Red Star players were talked into getting involved on the eve of the game, and said the official had a meeting with PSG chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi scheduled that did not eventually take place.

The French National Finance Prosecutor (PNF) announced that it began investigating the claim after it was alerted by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

"The article could seriously damage our club's reputation and that is why we insist that UEFA and investigators in Serbia and in France investigate the whole story and get the truth".

Paris St Germain beat Red Star 6-1. "Current technology is so advanced that it is simply impossible that such a case can not be resolved".

Both clubs have denied any wrongdoing, with PSG releasing a statement confirming they "categorically reject any and all direct and indirect implication in relation to these suspicions". I know absolutely nothing about this.

The French Regulatory Authority for Online Games, the body responsible for regulating online gambling in France, told L'Equipe no suspicious bets were made on the game.

The revelation comes in the week where Belgian police have so far arrested nine people - including one top referee and three agents - in an investigation into match-fixing and money laundering.
