UEFA will not open an investigation into Lyon's thumping 7-1 Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb because there were no "irregular betting patterns", but ...
... Ajax Amsterdam are pointing to "match fixing" NOT "irregular betting".
UEFA's own Betting Fraud Detection System did not detect any irregular betting patterns surrounding the match.
Lyon SIX second-half goals, which in combination with Ajax's 3-0 defeat to Real Madrid, was enough to take the French club into the last 16.
UEFA have yet to receive reports from the match referee or match delegate but say at this stage they have not seen anything which warrants further investigation.
Lyon scored six times in the second half as they came from 1-0 down to incredibly book their place in the knockout stage.
