Liverpool's narrow 1-0 win against Debrecen in the 2009 CL group stage is thought to be one of the hundreds of matches under investigation by Europol for match fixing. The agency suggested there was a CL fixture played by an English side in the last 3-4 years that had attracted their attention.
The central figure is Debrecen's goalie Vukasin Poleksic who is alleged to have taken a bribe to lose to the Reds by at least a two goal margin. The scoreline in the end was much closer. Dirk Kuyt scored the winner in a lacklustre match after Poleksic stopped Fernando Torres's effort. Poleksic was also banned for two years by UEFA after an investigation revealed he had failed to disclose being approached by Italian match fixers in a match against Fiorentina in 2009 which his side lost.
LFC responded to the allegations first reported by Danish publication Ekstra Bladet that the Debrecen match was the one under suspicion. In a statement, "Liverpool Football Club has not been contacted by anyone from Europol or Uefa in relation to this matter."
