La Liga president Javier Tebas has confirmed an investigation into Barcelona B’s 12-0 victory at Eldense in Sunday’s Segunda B clash.
Claims have since emerged that Eldense players had reportedly agreed to fix the match – which they trailed 8-0 at half-time – while the board announced all sporting activity would be suspended and ties with a group of Italian investors cut.
"We are going to look into it because the Eldense board have asked us to and the result at half time was out of the ordinary," Tebas told reporters in Spain on Monday.
"We're going to investigate because there are certain collateral issues with an Italian investment group that bear the hallmarks of the possible involvement of an international betting ring with a view to match-fixing."
