Liverpool beat Debrecen 1-0 at Anfield in the 2009 Champions League

Liverpool beat Debrecen 1-0 at Anfield in the 2009 Champions League

The European law enforcement agency said one Champions League match played in England is under investigation.

According to Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet, Europol is looking at Hungarian side Debrecen who lost 1-0 to Liverpool at Anfield in 2009.

There is no suggestion that anyone at Liverpool was involved in any wrongdoing.

Vukasin Poleksic, the Debrecen goalkeeper that night, was banned for two years in 2010 by UEFA for failing to report match-fixing activities involving a different game.

Europol has not revealed which Champions League match in England is under investigation but that it took place "in the last three to four years" and is one of 380 games being studied.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
