Spartak and Radnicki faced each other in the penultimate league round on May 13, 2018, in Subotica and the winner would clinch third position and qualification for the following season’s Europa League.
The home side scored two penalties, one of which was described as “scandalous” by the local press, and won 2-0, with the visitors going down to 10 men after their striker was sent off.
Police officers questioned the referee after the match because his decisions raised suspicion over possible match-fixing and his testimony was used by the prosecution.
The ruling, which can be appealed, was handed down by the Anti-Corruption Chamber of the High Court of Novi Sad.
