Accused of match-fixing

Couple of rivals from the Greek Super league are in very serious trouble.
After their duel on 04 February 2015 Olympiacos and Atromitos have been accused that they knew the result beforehand. This is the same case which was investigated that year when the federation decided to close it, but three days ago local media has reported that now it is re-opened and are revisiting other games as well.
If are found guilty, both clubs are facing relegation to second division, while the club owners Evangelos Marinakis and Giorgos Spanos, former coach Ricardo sa Pinto, three presidents, six former referees plus three officials are indicted for manipulation and corruption. The ethical committee wants heavy punishments: from up to three million euros to a complete removal of individuals from this sport.
