OH Leuven order UEFA to investigate their own matches

The Belgian top flight football club OH Leuven has asked the European football association UEFA to screen a number of its games. The club says that it recently heard rumours about some of its players being involved in betting on OH Leuven games. On top of that, OHL recently had a couple of strange results, when matches suddenly turned around.

The UEFA should determine whether there has been any suspicious betting on OH Leuven games in recent weeks. OHL are presently bottom-of-the-table in the Jupiler Pro League.

Last weekend, the Brabant club was leading 0-1 at relegation rivals Mouscron-Péruwelz before swallowing 3 goals in the final 10 minutes and eventually losing the match 3-1. The UEFA will also monitor upcoming games. OHL have 3 games to go, against KV Oostende, defending champions AA Gent and Club Brugge.

The weekly Sport-Voetbalmagazine mentions the names of Romain Reynaud and goalkeeper Rudy Riou. These names were confirmed to the VRT's sports desk Sporza. OH Leuven's step to directly contact UEFA is an extremely rare one, and points to the fact that the suspicions may be serious.
