No investigation into Zenit-Bayern fix

Bavarian State Prosecutors will not open an investigation into allegations last year's UEFA Cup semi-final between Zenit St Petersburg and Bayern Munich was fixed.

A recent report in Spanish newspaper El Pais claimed a gang with links to the Russian mafia had given money to Bayern ahead of the match.

Authorities in Germany looked into the allegations but have "not found enough evidence to justify a thorough investigation," according to Bavarian State Prosecutors' chief lawyer Christian Schmidt-Sommerfeld.

Zenit beat Bayern 5-1 on aggregate in the semi-final encounter earlier this year before going on to defeat Rangers 2-0 in the final.
