By PJ Browne Updated






According to reports from a Danish Newspaper, a Liverpool Champions League game against Hungarian side Debrecen in September 2009 is one of the 680 matches being investigated by as part of Europol's probe into match fixing.




A Liverpool spokesperson had said the club have not had any contact from Europol regarding the matter.

Vukasin Poleksic, the Debrecen goalkeeper that night, was banned for two years in 2010 by Uefa for failing to report an approach from match-fixers involving a different game.




Poleksic took his case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport which upheld the ban, saying: "It had been proven to its comfortable satisfaction that there had been contacts between the player and the members of a criminal group involved in match-fixing and betting fraud and that he was obliged to have reported the said contacts to Uefa. By failing to make such a report, Poleksic had violated the principles of conduct set forth in the Uefa regulations." It added that it had not established that any match fixing took place.




A Liverpool spokesman told the Press Association: "We have had no contact from Europol or any other organisation over this.

Liverpool won the game 1-0 with a goal from Dirk Kuyt.
