    Article: [
    French authorities are investigating potential match-fixing in Paris St-Germain's 6-1 Champions League win over Red Star Belgrade this month.

    A Red Star official allegedly placed a bet of almost 5m euros (£4.3m) for the Serbian club to lose by five goals, reported French newspaper L'Equipe.

    The French National Finance Prosecutor (PNF) is investigating the claims after being alerted by Uefa.

    Both clubs have denied any wrongdoing.

    A Red Star statement read: "FC Red Star with the highest anger and abomination rejects the story.

    "The article can harm and bring big damage to our club's reputation and that is why we insist that Uefa and investigators in Serbia and in France investigate the whole story and get the truth.

    "Today's technologies and other mechanisms are so improved that it is basically impossible to leave this case unsolved.

    "Red Star expects to get the truth at short notice and remove any doubt about our involvement in possible wrongdoing."

    In a statement, PSG expressed their "amazement and indignation".

    They added: "Paris Saint-Germain reiterates its commitment to a fundamental principle of sport, that of the integrity of competitions and therefore refutes any form of practice that could call into question that integrity."

    Brazil forward Neymar scored a hat-trick and Edinson Cavani, Angel di Maria and Kylian Mbappe also netted at Parc des Princes in Paris on 3 October.

    Former Germany international Marko Marin scored a second-half goal for Red Star.

    Lose by exactly 5 goals? I'm not sure some like Red Star could do that against someone like PSG.

    If red star get sanctioned from the group it could potentially fuck our group right up

    Current we are at an advantage with Napoli only claiming a point from them

    If Uefa declare all results sanction opposition teams a win, it could really make qualifying from that group very very difficult.

    Which is why they won't.

    At the risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist bitter, we're fucking good for the CL & great for their viewing figures.

    Whilst I don't subscribe to the argument that they'd rig games, I do think that fact would (& has) skewed decisions that could effect us going in or out of the competition that they can control (if it were Fulham who somehow won the CL in 05 no way do they get entry the next season IMO).

    As such I'm really not worried about this.

    I can imagine a bookie taking the money but not paying out on it, but reporting it to the authorities.
