A study led by David Forrest of the University of Liverpool's Management School and University of Salford's Professor Ian McHale into whether Sportradar's Fraud Detection System (FDS) was fit for purpose within UEFA's national markets came to the conclusion that "matches reported as suspicious by the FDS are very likely to have been manipulated."

Separate to the report Forrest said that betting related match-fixing has "affected the outcome of some leagues. One motive for fixing is to achieve sporting gain - for example to avoid a relegation threat. This is not betting motivated but will usually be picked up by monitoring the markets because people can't resist the temptation...and it can be the case that they can only afford the bribe by getting money from the betting market."
Forrest also points out that once match-fixing in a league becomes widely suspected by fans the clubs and the league face a bigger financial issue. He points to Italy (Greece is a similar and very recent example) where when the match-fixing scandal became wider known "there was a steeper decline in attendance".
