The Champions League also does not seem immune to the alleged match fixing. According to the newspaper L'Equipe, Paris Saint Germain – Red Star last October 3 that ended with a rout of the local team (6-1) could be rigged. The match, corresponding to the second day of the group stage of the Champions League, could have generated, on the part of a Serbian club leader, a bet of five million euros that his team lost by five goals difference, as well it happened
UEFA, which was allegedly tipped off by an informant who was credible, denounced the 'parquet national financier' (PNF) and several police officers camouflaged themselves among the public of the Parc des Princes to follow the match live. Only UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin and his closest colleagues knew what was happening. "An informant whose identity has obviously not been disclosed, but whose" pedigree "was considered as interesting as it is credible, has given UEFA a" pipeline "that could lead to one of the biggest fudge-match scandals ever." Explains L'Equipe.It was after the complaint when it was found that a senior leader of the Red Star invested, with several accomplices, the five million euros. The police also commissioned a match report to a specialist, in which he described some passivity in some Red Star players.
