According to the newspaper Correio da Manhã (CM), the Judiciary Police (PJ) is investigating a match between Benfica and Rio Ave, where the Octopus club won 1-0. The PJ suspects the payment to players of Rio Ave to lose the game with Benfica. According to the CM, there are still no defendants for the time being, and the investigation is being carried out in Lisbon, as it is related to the case of the e-mails. The players targeted are Cássio, Marcelo, and Roderick Miranda.
According to Correio da Manhã, Benfica used player’s agents to pay the players, so that they would lose the game with Benfica.
The game summary
Benfica’s goal came out strangely, as you can see, Cassio, on several occasions, proved not to be safe on the goal. Too much responsibility?
