In the first part of the season I noticed these results:

Bari - Cagliari 0-1
Cagliari - Chievo 1-2
Chievo - Bari 1-2

Then in the second part it happened this:

Cagliari - Bari 3-1
Chievo - Cagliari 2-1
Bari - Chievo 1-0

:eek:

This is surely the result of the case, but two things are certain.
First of all, 6 points in 4 games is an excellent achievement for any team which has avoiding relegation as the first target.
Then, a team which gives 6 points on 6 to the opponent can't be fishy (unless you discover a more complex scheme... such as this one!).

Back to reality, the odds for the X in the game Chievo-Catania have fallen badly (to 1.60 more or less!) because there has been an abnormally high flux of bets on the draw.

That would be an ingenious plan indeed...another interesting thing to note is that half the games were 2-1, which has often been the preferred result in fixed matches (when not fixed as draw, obviously). Of course this is all just circumstantial evidence, and not too strong at that, either.

Chievo-Catania has been dropped from many betting agencies' lists. Let's see if the convenient 0-0 or 1-1 draw happens...

I doubt on the above conspiracy theory, even if it is intelligent to pick up such evidence, it is probably just coincedence. However I wouldnt be surprised if Chievo and Catania settle for the draw.

I am not getting this :drunk:
3 teams, 4 games(for each team), 6 points(each team). Equal distribution of points for each of those 3 teams.

I see a damn Socialist agreement between the teams:groan:

Would anyone be surprised, really?

It's a Serie A game. You wouldn't know the difference between fixed and non-fixed, unless the ref does something.

Catania's penalty looked bs.

I didn't see a replay, though.

I doubt the ref was involved if there was a fix...why add another variable?

:yuck: indeed.

A massive £2million was staked with online giant Betfair on Italian clubs Chievo and Catania finishing level - with a further £217,000 on 1-1.

It followed a flood of bets with High Street bookies after talk of a sting first emerged.

Seven firms suspended betting by last Thursday. They had to pay out on bets placed beforehand.


maaaan I should have followed the 'program' and make myself a lot of $$$

Mutti, coach of Atalanta: "Cagliari ruined our plans (Note: of reducing the gap between Lazio and them), the win of Lazio annoyed us a bit. We didn't expect it, but we know very well how things work... "

Another flood of bets on two draws, in serie B this time, for Vicenza-Crotone and Frosinone-Modena.

Well if Cagliari are already throwing games, Mutti will feel the advantage tomorrow...

By the way, Cagliari promised to refund ticket-buyers if they lost to Lazio. Apparently Lotito paid more than what Cagliari's usual home gate is. ;)

Since Chievo is so often mentioned in these, wonder what the odds are for Udinese not to lose tomorrow.

Yes, the people inside that world who talk about conspiracy theories look either hypocritical or dumb. If they really know they should talk, if they don't know they lose a golden opportunity for shutting up every time they talk.

The odds for Udinese not losing are 1.12 :D
