The match-fixing revelations from former Osasuna director Angel Luis Vizcay could have consequences for the club and three other Spanish teams.

Vizcay was speaking at the ‘Osasuna Case’ trial on Tuesday and claimed that Osasuna paid Getafe and Real Betis to lose matches against them and that Osasuna paid Espanyol to draw against them in the 2012/13 and 2013/14 seasons, in addition to the payment of bonuses to some clubs as an incentive to win against Osasuna‘s relegation rivals.

All of this is alleged and former Osasuna president Miguel Archanco denied that any matches were fixed at that time.

Yet there could be punishments handed out by UEFA, who are waiting to see how this trial plays out.

Even though several years have passed, the four implicated teams could still face punishments and exclusion from European competition could be one of them.

In the past, BesiktasFenerbahceSivasspor and Skenderbeu have suffered similar sanctions for similar cases.

For now, the trial is continuing and UEFA will have to wait for more details to emerge.

That goes against Vizcay‘s claims that GetafeReal Betis and Espanyol were all paid for matches against Osasuna to ensure favourable results for the Navarre-based side – two defeats and a draw.

Both Vizcay and Archanco were declaring in court for about two hours, while the day’s other testimony came from former vice-president Juan Pascual, who spoke more briefly.

It’s important to note that GetafeReal Betis and Espanyol are not being investigated at this trial.
