ATHENS: A Greek cup quarterfinal between league leaders Olympiakos and second division AEK was abandoned after a last-minute Olympiakos goal sparked crowd violence.
Tonight’s violence came two weeks after Greek authorities suspended top league games for a week following crowd violence. League games were held again over the weekend, but without spectators.
Argentinian attacker Franco Daniel Jara scored the only goal of the game in the 89th minute, bouncing a pass off his chest to give Olympiakos a 2-1 win on aggregate.
A few home AEK supporters then invaded the pitch at the Athens Olympic Stadium, and one threw a flare at celebrating Olympiakos players.
