Italian football has been hit by yet another match fixing scandal, this time involving a team that scored eight own goals in the last 10 minutes of a regional cup match on their way to a 14-3 defeat.

The Italian FA is set to launch an investigation into the Coppa Sicilia match between Borgata Terrenove and Bagheria, the final game in a three-team group which also featured Partinicaudace.

All three sides play in Prima Categoria, the eighth tier of the league.

Bagheria, needing a point to qualify, were 4-3 behind with 10 minutes to play in Wednesday’s game when Borgata hit two goals in quick succession.

Borgata players then watched in bewilderment as their opponents scored one own goal after the other, shared between three Bagheria players.

The result meant Borgata qualified on goal difference ahead of Partinicaudace.

“It had been a real contest up to a certain point then Bagheria staged a farce,” Borgata coach Ignazio Chianetta said.

“Their captain told me they preferred us to qualify rather than Partinicaudace.

Partinicaudace coach Giovanni Cammarata said: “I can guarantee there was no agreement between us and Bagheria.

“I can’t try to understand a motive for these eight own goals. It has nothing to do with football and I hope the FIGC investigates.”

Sandro Morgana, the FIGC’s regional president, said: “I will personally inform our prosecutors about this and they will look into the case and establish which sanctions should apply.”
