Italy wants match-fixing punishments

Stefano Mauri is facing a four-and-a-half-year ban which would effectively end his playing career for his part in a match-fixing scandal in 2011.

Mauri is one of eight individuals referred to the national disciplinary commission as part of the investigation.
Mauri maintains he is not involved in any wrongdoing.

That is the punishment state prosecutor Stefano Palazzi has suggested while deliberating at the conclusion of an investigation into two games which involved Mauri’s club Lazio, against Genoa and Lecce in 2011.

Palazzi has also called for a six-point deduction for Lazio and a three-point penalty for Genoa. A disciplinary committee will now discuss the case in depth before delivering its judgment, which is expected to arrive before the end of the month.

Should Palazzi’s recommendations be followed, the 33-year-old Lazio captain’s career would effectively be over while Lazio, who were also docked three points as part of the Calciopoli scandal in 2006, would suffer a severe blow to their title ambitions before the season has even started.

Mauri maintains his innocence, saying earlier this month: "I'm certain I'll be proved right in the end."
