Di Pierro's arrest came after Eldense president David Aguilar denounced what had happened and asked for help from the police and the LFP.

The Spanish FA are said to be monitoring the ongoing police investigation with interest.

But since then claims have emerged that players on the visiting team threw the game, while the board announced all sporting activity would be suspended and ties with a group of Italian investors cut.

President of La Liga, Javier Tebas, on Monday confirmed that they will investigate Barcelona B's 12-0 win over Eldense in a Segunda B fixture.

"I know who the players [involved in the alleged match-fixing] are, but I can not say", he told RAC1.

"When I am able to, I will reveal the names of the players".

Barcelona B were 8-0 up after 45 minutes and rattled in another four in the second half.

"I told the other bench players not to warm up because it was clear the game was fixed".

"In the dressing room, I nearly came to blows with some of them, there were four implicated in it".

"I know who [was involved] but I can not say at the moment... four players are involved", the Mauritanian striker told RAC-1.

"There were four that were involved and I have given the names to the police".

"The coach told me to come on and I told him I did not want to".

Saad said his suspicion grew before the game when he and another regular starter were left off Saturday's starting XI.

Tebas said the inquiry had been requested by Eldense's board of directors after the defeat which relegated the Alicante-based club to the fourth tier. Barcelona "B" leads its regional group of the third division.

Eldense are connected to an Italian investor group, and it is suspected that this group may have had an influence on the fixing of the game against Barcelona's junior team.

"It seems right to me that it is followed up, as we must rid football of incidents like this, at the professional level, amateur level or whatever level".

Eldense has played three straight seasons in the third division.
