The bookmaker Winline calculated all the bets on Spartak’s victory in the Russian Premier League Tinkoff match against Sochi as winning. This is stated in the message of the bookmaker, which came to the disposal of Izvestia on August 11.
“The head of the refereeing corps Viktor Kashshai has already acknowledged the erroneousness of the unfairly appointed penalty kick against Alexander Maksimenko. Therefore, the bookmaker Winline, a long-term partner of the football club “Spartak”, calculated all the bets on the victory of the red and white as winning in the match against “Sochi”, – the message says.
The winnings will be credited to those who made a bet on the victory of the red and white. The total amount of winning bets will be over RUB 15 million.
“Spartak” on Sunday, August 9, at home drew with “Sochi” with a score of 2: 2. The guests scored both goals from the penalty spot, the legitimacy of which was in doubt. After the match, the head of the refereeing department of the Russian Football Union (RFU) Viktor Kashshai admitted that Kazartsev made a mistake in the moment with the second penalty. RFU said that the referees of the meeting will be tested on a polygraph.
The chairman of the board of directors of Spartak Leonid Fedun said after the match that he intends to withdraw the capital club from the Russian championship.
In his opinion, in a number of meetings the referees deliberately make mistakes against the team. Fedun was dissuaded from this decision by the head of the RFU, Alexander Dyukov. Member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Shamil Tarpishchev called refereeing in this game insanity.
