Soccer: Lazio's Mauri has match-fixing ban cut to six months (ANSA) - Rome, January 10 - Lazio Captain Stefano Mauri's nine-month ban for a match-fixing offence has been reduced to six months by the Italian Olympic Committee's National Tribunal for the Arbitration of Sport.

The Lazio footballer in August was slapped with a nine-month suspension for having failed to report match-fixing cases he allegedly had information about with regards to the Lazio-Genoa and Lecce-Lazio matches that took place in May 2011.

He will be able to return to action next month.
