LONDON (AP) - Soccer's European governing body is investigating 40 cases of match-fixing involving Champions League and UEFA Cup matches.

Peter Limacher, head of disciplinary services at UEFA, told The Associated Press on Friday that the cases involved early qualifying matches of clubs "mainly from eastern Europe" over the last four years.

Limacher says UEFA had been alerted to suspicious betting patterns.

Limacher says in the cases UEFA has seen, "it's really the deliberate planned fix of the games - the whole games."

He says most clubs being investigated sought to make a profit from betting because they knew they would be eliminated.
