Match Fixing In Europe

German prosecutors have been making arrests for the past two days and the breadth of the scandal is pretty big.
German prosecutors investigating about 200 games in Europe, including at least three in the Champions League and 12 in the Europa League, ordered more than 50 police raids in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the United Kingdom, leading to the arrests. The matches under investigation were played in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Croatia, Slovenia, Turkey, Hungary, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Austria, although to-date no matches played with Britain are under suspicion.
Man, 200 hundred games!!!!
