LaLiga launches investigation on match-fixing in last season copa del rey

LaLiga has confirmed that it’s currently undergoing an investigation regarding a possible case of match-fixing during last season’s Copa del Rey.

The fixture in question is Levante’s 8-0 first round win over Huracan Melilla, which was played on December 2, 2021.

According to reports, the investigation, which is being handled by Melilla Magistrate’s Court was opened following an anonymous tip-off received by LaLiga’s whistleblower channel

A statement from the Spanish league on Thursday said that second division side “Levante are completely unaffected and not under investigation.”

Huracan Melilla is a club founded in 2020 and play in the fifth tier of Spanish football having been promoted last season.

They reached the Copa del Rey for the first time last year after beating Atarfe Industrial 2-1 in a qualifying game.

However, their journey ended emphatically when they were beaten 8-0 at home by Levante, who were a LaLiga side at the time.

The circumstances surrounding that defeat are now being looked into.

Levante, who are not under any suspicion, was knocked out by Alcoyano in the next round.
