Massive betting on Swiss win raises match-fixing concerns

This is alarming.

Many people betted that the game would end 2-0 in Switzerland's favor and Switzerland scored their second goal in the 93rd minute... :eekani:
Very disturbing...

If the accusations are true, what will be the consequences? Will it benefit Israel's situation?

Of course it will benefit Israel, if true. Switzerland would have to be disqualified, guaranteeing us at least second place in the group. Hope it's true. :hopeful:

Seriously though, why would they need to match fix against Moldova of all teams?

The matter is not that Switzerland needed to win Moldova, the matter is how much would it end.

Well if it is true, they should be punished. Don´t forget that FIFA headquarters are in Switzerland and maybe this could help the Swiss to flee from a punishment. They didn´t think twice in having Israel hosting games abroad.

Which game is this?

Cause the away/home game ended also in a 2-0 draw?
Is that odd ?
