Match-fixing has become a huge problem in contemporary football. It seems that money is doing a lot of talking in football. Below identifies a recent incident that has been highlighted on social media by numerous companies and betting punters.
How does match fixing work?
For example a team or player may be bribed with money by wealthy people into letting an opposition team win a game, score goals or even by getting sent off. Once this is done the briber may bet a large amount of money on a certain outcome to happen, which they have paid for to be fixed.
Recent questionable incident
Bet Bay Football Tips, who recently completed their £20 to £1000 race (involves a rolling accumulator where the profits of each bet are reinvested in the new bet until it reaches the £1000 target) on Monday 8th December 2014 for the second time within 6 weeks have been left puzzled with what happened in a game they tipped on Tuesday 9th December. They attempted to restart their race after just completing it on the 9th December 2014 and tipped a team in Qatar, who were major favorites to win the game, however this team went on to shockingly lose 6 – 1 at home to a team that hadn’t picked up an away win since April 2014.
Live Reports from Twitter regarding the match
@QatariFootball – “(accused team) with some of the worst defending I’ve ever seen in my life. These defenders literally letting the attackers take shots.”
