PSG v Red Star game probed over betting

Credit PA

Red Star travel to Anfield for their next Champions League group game before heading home to Belgrade for the return fixture in November.

A report in the French newspaper L'Equipe alleged that a senior figure at Red Star attempted to bet nearly €5million on the Serbian champions losing the game by five goals.

The reports say that UEFA alerted the French national finance prosecutor about the incident prior to the game, but the allegations were not made public and only UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin and a few of his closest associates were aware of the investigation. The game was played last week and Red Star could now face action after the claims came to light.

"Paris Saint-Germain remains at the disposal of the investigators and will not tolerate the slightest attack on its reputation nor that of its officials".

Red Star Belgrade now sit bottom of Group C of their Champions League group.

Red Star deputy spokesman Nebojsa Todorovic told Agence France Presse that he "cannot in any way comment on this", while Milan Vukovic, the spokesman for Serbia's football association, was unavailable for comment.

PSG went on to beat their Serbian opponents 6-1 at the Parc des Princes, with Neymar hitting a hat-trick alongside goals from Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe.

Former Germany global Marko Marin scored a second-half goal for Red Star.
