Genoa's Armando Izzo gets 18-month ban in match-fixing investigation

Armando Izzo failed to report match-fixing during his time at Avellino.

Genoa defender Armando Izzo has been banned from football for 18 months in a match-fixing scandal.

Izzo, 25, was given the suspension and a €50,000 fine for failing to report match-fixing during his time at lower-league club Avellino.

The Italian football federation's prosecutor had asked for a ban of six years, but the charge of match-fixing was downgraded.

Two Serie B matches are under investigation: Modena's 1-0 win over Avellino on May 17, 2014, and Avellino's 3-0 victory over Reggina the following weekend.

Avellino have been docked three points and also fined €50,000.

Cagliari defender Fabio Pisacane, who also played for Avellino, has been cleared along with the club's president and other former players.

Former Avellino captain Francesco Millesi and retired player Luca Pini have been banned for five years.
