Russian bookmakers have informed FIFA that a number of large and suspicious bets were made on Saturday's World Cup 2010 qualifier between Moldova and Switzerland, the Sovetski Sport daily said on Tuesday.

The day of the match saw a large number of bets placed on a two-goal win for Switzerland, the paper reported. Even when the odds were lowered, bets continued to be placed, eventually reaching, according to preliminary information, some $1.3 million.

The match ended 2-0 to Switzerland, with the Swiss scoring their second goal in the last minute.

The national association of Russian bookmakers, part of FIFA's early warning system to monitor irregular betting patterns, subsequently informed world soccer's governing body. Information on the unusual nature of the betting on the match also came from other countries, and an investigation was opened into the fixture, the paper said.

Early Warning System GmbH is a company founded specifically for the purpose of monitoring sports betting and has its own staff and offices in Zurich. It has been operating since July 1, 2007.
