Andrea Masiello arrested

The former Bari defender Andrea Masiello, who now plays for Atalanta, has been arrested in connection with alleged match-fixing in Serie A last season. Eight of Masiello's former Bari team-mates are also being investigated by police over the possible manipulation of matches.

Italian media said the allegations centre on a match between Bari and Lecce in May last year, which Bari lost 2-0 with Masiello scoring an own goal in the 80th minute. Bari had already been relegated by the time that match was played.
