Italian champions Inter are alleged to have thrown away matches towards the end of last season in order to increase Scudetto odds, according to a damning report released by the Italian Public Ministry and published in Friday's edition of Il Giornale.

The Milan-based paper leads with the headline: "Public Ministry: Inter Threw Away Games To Help Facilitate Gambling Bets."

The report claims the Nerazzurri, who eventually won the title on the last day of the season, drew and lost games in order to increase gambling odds regarding last season's Scudetto race.

In Particular, the report focuses on games from week 24 onwards where a number of betting agencies stopped taking bets on Inter winning the Scudetto.

The enquiry was carried out by Police at the request of the Public Ministry who are investigating allegations regarding a series of phone calls between the then Inter coach Roberto Mancini and a Mafia associate called Domenico Brescia.

Brescia is an Inter fan and he already faced the Italian justice system regarding allegations of drug dealing.

The report also highlights a number of different incidents during games and alleges that Zlatan Ibrahimovic's return from injury was postponed on purpose.

In addition, there are claims that Julio Cruz was told to leave the penalty in the penultimate game of the season against Siena to Marco Materazzi who missed, and the game ended 2-2. This meant the gap between Inter and Roma on the final day of the season was just one point.

Ibrahimovic returned from injury on the final day of the season to help Inter win against Parma and lift the Scudetto.

These claims are likely to rock the Nerazzurri as another scandal hits the Italian game.

WTF else is new. Nothing that happens in Italy surprises me. :rolleyes:

After the last fixing scandal, I even began to question their international successes as well, both at a club and national level.

The long arm of the mafia...

Certamente ci sono giornali piu affidabili de il Giornale.

Poi e' strano che l'Inter si giochi lo scudetto all'ultima partita
visto che giocava contro il Parma che lottava per la salvezza.

Massimo Moratti Stays Quiet Over Inter Match-Fixing Claims

Inter president Massimo Moratti has decided not to comment on claims in Il Giornale newspaper which allege his club threw away matches in order to increase the Scudetto odds last season.

An enquiry, which has been released by a branch of the Italian government and published by Il Giornale, claims that the Nerazzurri fixed games towards the end of last season.

The news has rocked calcio this morning, but Moratti has refused to comment on the situation.

"I heard about the news this morning," Moratti told Sky Sport Italia.

"However, I have not read the newspaper and therefore I cannot give any comment on the story. Thank you."

The report, which was conducted by Police on behalf of the Public Ministry, claims Inter threw away games from Week 24 of the 2007-08 season onwards.

One of those games was the penultimate match of the season where the Nerazzurri drew 2-2 with Siena.

In addition, there are claims suggesting Zlatan Ibrahimovic's return from injury was postponed in order to weaken the team.

More news is expected to follow as the story unfolds throughout the day.

The enquiry has been archived by the Public Ministry because there is no evidence to support it that`s it.......my belief is that behind it there`s the mind of Moggi,he would everything to get revenge on our team.....regarding the Juve fans they can say what they want but there are so many telephone interceptions to prove it,and then the club agreed the sentence with the examining commission.
And so this 3d can be close,it should`nt be opened in the first place.

i opened the thread because it is a scandal...that i have no doubt it has it's significant part of truth. Maybe they're no evidence now but who know what will bounce in the future. Sincer the Calciopoli Italy has lost it's value in world football.And not only than. A lot of scandals took place in italy, and this things will never stop.
Secondly i opened the thread cause Inter will play our team in february and because your team will be our adversary, i found it good to open this thread cause it's based on your team. True or not, it's not yet prooved but i see no reason not to open it.

It wouldn't surprise me if it was true tbh but I'm just not going to get involved actually, as I don't follow Italian football that much.

It wouldn't surprise me either, tbh. I used to watch Serie A back in the Mid 90's but lost interest after 99'.

Yes al right,but just because juve,milan and other teams,but not Inter,were involved in the match fixing scandal,does`nt means that we `ve to criminalize all the italian teams.....I assure you nobody in Italy believes to this story,you`ll see nothing it will come out,because there isn`t anything.

There's something shifty about Inter, their last match v. Parma last year rings a bell.

Parma need a win to stave off relegation, from their last match, and all of a sudden 2 days before the match, Parma fire their manager? :rolleyes:

Plus they get ridiculous offside calls week in and week out.

I love Italian football, and I'm an ardent supporter of the Azzuri. I'm not sure I buy into everything being corrupted, but to say Inter has something to do with match fixing, wouldn't surprise me in the least, given my points above.

Azzurri.

The thing that makes me doubt conspiracies is exactly the
last match vs. Parma, how realistic is it that they gamble
their Scudetto on the last game of the season against a
team that's fighting for salvation [aka motivated]?
