Former Osasuna director admits to match-fixing in Spain

MADRID (AP) A former director of Spanish club Osasuna said Tuesday the team made payments to fix Spanish league results more than five years ago.

Angel Vizcay told a judge in a match-fixing trial that the payments were made to try to keep Osasuna in the first division both in 2012-13 and 2013-14.

He said separate payments of 150,000 euros ($166,000) were made to players of Real Betis and Valladolid as incentive to win matches, while 400,000 euros were given to Getafe players to lose a game against Osasuna.
