Sport's highest tribunal has overturned an 18-month ban on a Hungarian club player allegedly targeted by match-fixers before a Champions League match but maintained a two-year ban on his team-mate.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport annulled the suspension imposed on Debrecen's Norbert Meszaros after deciding there was not enough evidence to suggest he had breached UEFA regulations.

However, CAS maintained a two-year ban on his team-mate Vukasin Poleksic for failing to report the approach.

Both players took part in the Champions League match at home to Fiorentina in October 2009 which the Italian side won 4-3.

CAS said there was no evidence that the match had been manipulated.
