Greek football rocked by match-fixing scandal with Olympiacos set to be relegated to the second tier

Greek giants, Olympiacos are reportedly facing relegation to the second tier following match-fixing allegations. 




According to Corriere dello sport, the club are on the precipice of free-falling down the divisions to the second tier after investigations into a February 2015 fixture against Atromitos were re-opened.

If found guilty, the club could be hit with a personal fine exceeding two-and-a-half million and a lifetime ban from football.

The investigation dates back to a February 2015 league game: Olympiacos-Atromitos (2-1). 15 individuals and the two clubs were accused according to the provisions of Article 27 of the Code of Conduct of the Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) of 'fixing the result of a match for betting purposes'.

Among those accused were Evangelos Marinakis, the owner of Olympiacos and English side Nottingham Forest, Giorgos Spanos (who owns Atromitos), former EPO president Giorgos Sarris and vice-president Aristidis Stathopoulos, three more former EPO officials, six former referees and refereeing officials, the Atromitos technical director Yiannis Angelopoulos and former Atromitos manager Ricardo Sa Pinto. 

Olympiacos won the match in question 2-1 against Atromitos, and later won the title at the end of the season, while Atromitos secured qualification to the SuperLeague Greece play-offs. 

The match was investigated at first but then the Greek Football Federation decided to close the case.

Greek media, SDNA have now confirmed the match is being revisited, while other historic fixtures are now being examined.
