ROME (AP) - Lazio captain Stefano Mauri has been banned for six months by the Italian soccer federation for his part in a match-fixing scandal.

Mauri was one of eight players accused of rigging the Serie A games between Lazio-Genoa and Lecce-Lazio in May 2011 and for failing to report match-fixing. He was found guilty for his role in the Lecce match.

Mauri says he will appeal the ban.

Prosecutor Stefano Palazzi had asked for a 4 1/2-year suspension. He also wanted Lazio to be docked six points, and Genoa and Lecce three points each. However, the federation fined Lazio $53,000 and Lecce $26,000. Genoa was cleared.

Alessandro Zamperini, who was already banned for five years, received an additional two-year suspension.
