Possible match-fixing in Ukrainian football league


According to Ukrainian journalist Igor Tsyganyk, the Ukrainian Premier League match between Hoverla Uzhgorod and Olimpik Donetsk (0:2) could have been fixed.

Tsyganyk’s colleagues from his TV program Profootball were convinced, one hour before kick-off, that Olimpik would win the match by a two-goal margin. The journalist also added that a day before the match took place, the odds available on an away win plummeted dramatically (cut in half) without any significant reason. Prior to this sudden drop in price the odds had drifted by no more than 3%.

The goals in the match were scored by Olimpik players Goshkoderya and Moha. It’s also worth noting that the Donetsk club finished the match with only 9 players, after Tanchyk and Partsvania were sent off.
