Lazio players to be questioned over match-fixing


MILAN (AP) -Lazio captain Stefano Mauri and teammate Giuseppe Sculli will be questioned next Tuesday about their alleged role in the Italian match-fixing scandal.

The pair, along with former player Omar Milanetto and Lazio physiotherapist Romano Massimo Papola, will be asked about Lazio's matches against Genoa and Lecce in May 2011.

Mauri and Milanetto were arrested last May and have already been questioned by the Italian Football Federation.

The latest hearings are part of the Cremona thread of the investigation. Punishments already doled out from the Bari and Naples probes include a 10-month ban for Juventus coach Antonio Conte that was later reduced to four months.
