FOOTBALLERS from two Spanish clubs have been summoned to the state prosecutor investigating alleged match fixing in a La Liga fixture between Levante and Real Zaragoza.
The state prosecutor’s office in Madrid announced that a number of players had been summoned for questioning on October 3.
The match under investigation was played during the last round of the 2010-11 season which saw Zaragoza stave off relegation.
Two goals from current Atletico Madrid captain Gabi Fernandez gave Zaragoza run out 2-1 winners.
The La Liga president, Javier Tebas, included the match in a list of nine matches to be investigated in a report in June 2013.
Zaragoza said in a statement that it had ‘no knowledge of any circumstances connected to the investigation’ but that it would ‘cooperate with any requests’ made by the prosecutor.
Match fixing is a crime in Spain and can lead to prison sentences for individuals and a club being banned from official competition.
