MOST COMMENTED

More fallout from the Chinese soccer game-fixing scandal: Guangzhou GPC and Chengdu Blades -- owned by English side Sheffield United -- face expulsion from the Super League. Two new teams would join the Super League to keep the total at 16.

A final decision should be announced later in the week. The teams can appeal the decision, "but the mountain of evidence unearthed during the nationwide crackdown on gambling means they have little chance of succeeding," according to the state-run China Daily.

Second division Qingdao Hailifeng could be disqualified entirely. More than a dozen players and officials have been arrested in the investigation into the scandal that included game-fixing and other abuses.
