Snapshot: Greek Cup Semi-Final Delayed After PAOK Fans Cover Olympiakos Subs Bench In Fish…

By Chris Wright

There were a couple of reasons that the kick-off of the Greek Cup semi-final second leg between PAOK and Olympiakos had to be delayed last night, with a huge pre-game flare display engulfing the pitch in thick, accrid smoke that took several minutes to clear.

However, along with the lack of visibility, kick-off had to be knocked back another couple of minutes after a clean-up operation was required when a gang of mischievous PAOK fans dumped a bucket of fish all over the¬†Olympiakos subs bench…


Poor guy.

Indeed, after the fish incident, the referee ordered both sets of players back to the dressing room until he was given guarantees of their safety from PAOK’s security team.

The match was a predictably stormy affair, with multiple fights and skirmishes breaking out throughout – both sides ending the game reduced to ten men, with 15 minutes of stoppage time being played at the end of the second half to compensate for all the bad blood.

Oh, and PAOK won 1-0 to go through to the final on away goals.

    More clubs should follow PAOKs footstaps……….. Bad for Soccer in Greece but I don’t think Olympiaos or Greek authorities care !
    Don’t forget thats how Olympiakos wins theytrophies at home!

    PAOK fans are more or less acting like they’re savages. It’s not the first time they’re doing things like that, UEFA has punished them a lot of times in their few European appearances.
    In fact the incident with the fish was not the most serious, they threw bananas at a Brazilian player of Olympiakos and in the end of the game they entered the field and kicked and punched Saviola and other players.
