A Bundesliga game has been mentioned for the first time in Germany's widening football match-fixing scandal, according to two newspaper reports.
Referee Jürgen Jansen was allegedly approached by a Croatian-controlled betting ring in November and asked to make sure the game between Kaiserslautern and Freiburg ended in the "right" result, it was reported in the respected Sueddeutsche Zeitung and mass-circulation Bild newspapers.
Jansen was allegedly approached by one of three Croatians who have been arrested on suspicion of fraud. The match, on Nov 27, ended in a 3-0 win for Kaiserslautern after two disputed goals.
