Four soccer players cheated to win bets, probe suggests

Four soccer players from a Super League team colluded with others to affect the course of games so they could win thousands of euros from betting, according to a preliminary judicial investigation.

According to the probe’s results, seen by Kathimerini, a 24-year-old player repeatedly contacted a 28-year-old man regarding betting issues ahead of a game between Olympiakos and Panionios. The soccer player advised his contact to bet on there being more than 13 corners in the game. There were in fact 16 – 13 conceded by Panionios and three by Olympiakos. This allegedly led to a post-tax betting win of 19,100 euros.

Wiretaps on the players’ phones suggest that the 24-year-old was to be paid 6,300 euros and the other three players lesser amounts.

The 24-year-old was also found to be in contact with a 48-year-old gas station owner to whom he allegedly owned 30,000 euros. In a text message, the player appears to suggest he could help fix matches.
