International Match-fixing Scandal: Liverpool – Debrecen, 1-0


According to the British media, the Liverpool-Debrecen Champions League match of 2009 was fixed.

Daily Mail says that Debrecen goalkeeper Vukasin Poleksic was allegedly paid to ensure there were more than two goals in the match.

Liverpool won the game 1-0 and had seven shots on target — including one from Fernando Torres that Poleksic palmed into the path of Dirk Kuyt for the winner. The Debrecen game is believed to be one of more than 380 professional matches across the world — including World Cup and European Championship qualifiers and two Champions League games — under investigation by Europol.
