33 charged in match-fixing probe by Italian Football Federation

Italian football has been rocked by a match-fixing scandal yet again, reports FoxSports.com.

33 players from the club A.S. Bari have been charged in the investigation of two matches the club played while in Serie B, the second tier of Italian football.

The first match in question was a May 11, 2008 fixture against Treviso and the second was a May 23, 2009 match versus Salernitana.

From the Fox Sports report:

In 2006, one of the major Serie A clubs, Juventus, was involved in match-fixing and immediately demoted to Serie B.

In 2012, arrests were made to players for involvement in yet more match-fixing, including Lazio captain Stefano Mauri and former Genoa skipper Omar Milanetto.
