ROME (AP) - The two-day match-fixing hearing involving Lazio captain Stefan Mauri, seven other players and three Italian clubs has ended.

The Italian soccer federation's disciplinary committee will now examine the evidence and is expected to pass sentence midway through next week.

Prosecutor Stefano Palazzi wants Mauri suspended for 4 1/2 years. He has requested a six-point deduction for Lazio and three-point penalty for Genoa and Lecce.

Mauri is one of eight players accused of rigging games and failing to report match-fixing for two Serie A games - Lazio vs. Genoa and Lecce vs. Lazio in May 2011.

About 40 Lazio fans held a sit-in protest Thursday in front of the Rome hotel where the hearing was taking place.
