Prosecutor summons players in match-fixing probe for Levante vs. Zaragoza match in 2011


MADRID — A Spanish state prosecutor has summoned players for questioning regarding possible match-fixing in a 2011 Spanish league game between Levante and Real Zaragoza.

The state prosecutor's office said in an email that it "has started procedures to investigate match-fixing and has summoned players implicated for questioning on Oct. 3."

The match under investigation was played during the last round of the 2010-11 season. Zaragoza won 2-1 at Levante.

In 2013, the Spanish league president, Javier Tebas, included the Levante vs. Zaragoza match in a list of nine matches that the league was investigating for possible match-fixing.
