Lyon's 7-1 win over Dinamo 'not suspicious'

A probe into Lyon's shock 7-1 Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb has not revealed any irregularities, France's betting watchdog said yesterday. 

France's online gaming authority ARJEL opened their investigation after the match in Zagreb on Wednesday night, which featured the fastest ever hat-trick in the Champions League and gave the French side a surprise ticket to the last 16 at the expense of Dutch side Ajax.

Lyon, who went into their final Group D game three points behind Ajax, needed to make up a goal difference of seven to reach the knockout rounds and won 7-1 with goals off glaring defensive and goalkeeping errors. Real Madrid and Lyon qualified for the last 16.

The betting regulator said they "In the light of analyses carried out today by the French regulator, no particular anomaly was recorded."
