Charges may be filed in La Liga match-fixing case next week

Madrid: Spain`s anti-corruption prosecutor could be ready to file charges in a suspected case of match-fixing involving La Liga clubs Levante and Real Zaragoza early next week.

A spokesman for the prosecutor`s office said it was "possible" the charges, which relate to a game on the final day of the 2010-11 season, will be filed in a Valencia court on Monday or Tuesday, confirming a report in Marca sports daily on Friday.

Zaragoza won the match at Levante`s Ciutat de Valencia stadium 2-1, avoiding relegation to the second division, and the prosecutor`s office has been investigating whether the home players were paid to lose.

The match has been dubbed "the game of shame" in the Spanish media.
