macedonian-club-fk-pobeda FK Pobeda have been banned and kicked out of  European competitions for eight years having been found guilty of deliberately losing a match.

President Aleksandar Zabrcanec and former captain Nikolce Zdravevski were handed lifetime bans by UEFA from all football activities in Europe.

UEFA said when brining the charges that Zabrcanec and Zdravevski were suspected of “manipulating the outcome… to gain an undue advantage for themselves and a third party.”

The panel ruled that the two men fixed the outcome of the qualifying match in which Pobeda conceded three goals in the first half during the home leg. Pobeda drew the second leg 1-1 in Armenia, losing 4-2 on aggregate.

UEFA President Michel Platini said last month that match-fixing and illegal betting was the greatest problem facing European football.This is one of many cases.
