UEFA launch Champions League fix charge

UEFA have charged FYR Macedonian club FK Pobeda for "manipulating the outcome of a UEFA match to gain undue advantage for themselves and a third party".

The charge relates to a 2004 Champions League first qualifying round match against FC Pyunik in Skopje, which the Armenian side won 3-1.

The charge also implicates the president of FK Pobeda, as well as a player, with UEFA's Control & Disciplinary Body set to deal with the case on April 17.

UEFA revealed in a statement they had brought the charge, almost five years after the game was played, based on reports of irregular betting patterns and declarations from witnesses.

Pyunik scored three first-half goals without reply in the match.

Their 17-year-old striker Edgar Manucharyan scored a double either side of Zhora Hovhannisyan's strike before Pyunik had Karen Aleksanyan sent off just before the break.

Pobeda pulled a goal back through Blagoja Gesoski 10 minutes from time, but they did not progress after drawing the away leg 1-1 in Yerevan.

A statement on UEFA's website read: "UEFA has announced today that the Macedonian club FK Pobeda, its president and one player have been charged for being in breach of the principles of integrity and sportsmanship by manipulating the outcome of a UEFA match to gain an undue advantage for themselves and a third party.

"The match under investigation was the UEFA Champions League first qualifying round first leg between FK Pobeda and FC Pyunik on 13 July 2004.

"The charge is based on reports received from the betting industry on irregular betting patterns and the declarations of several witnesses.

"The control & disciplinary body will deal with the case on 17 April."
