The pre-match setting for PAOK and Olympiakos

Yesterday’s Greek cup semi-final between PAOK and Olympiakos was held up for over an hour on Wednesday after supporters set off flares and smoke bombs and even set light to the Olympiakos bench.

The semi-final needed little billing as the fixture is tempestuous at the best of times, but matters certainly got out of hand before a ball was ever kicked in anger.

Before kick-off  PAOK fans lit thousand of torches and smoke bombs and some were thrown at the Olympiakos players and bench when the two teams entered the football pitch.

The referee then ordered the two teams to leave the pitch and return to the dressing room.

He postponed the match until guarantees are given over players’ safety.

After the final whistle, home fans stormed in to attack the Olympiakos players on the way to the locker room, with Maniatis and Nelson Valdez getting hit according to Olympiakos.

PAOK won 1-0 to overturn its 2-1 first-leg deficit as both team ended the game with 10 men.

The referee played an incredible 15 minutes of injury time and players were seen fighting with each other throughout the second half.
