Italian football is set to be investigated over yet another scandal.
The incident this time involves a regional cup match where one team scored eight own goals in the last 10 minutes of the game to lose 14-3.

The Italian federation will launch it’s probe into the Coppa Sicilia match between Borgata Terrenove and Bagheria, the final game in a three-team group which also featured Partinicaudace.
All three sides play in Prima Categoria, the eighth tier of the Italian game.
Bagheria trailed 4-3 with 10 minutes to play, needing just a point to qualify, when Borgata hit two goals in quick succession to open up a three-goal cushion.
Borgata players then watched in disbelief as their opponents scored one own goal after the other in to their own net.
The result meant Terrenove qualified on goal difference ahead of the third team in the group, Partinicaudace.
