AEK Players Chased off Pitch by Angry Fans



AEK athen fansAEK Athens’ home game against relegation rival Panthrakikos in the Greek league was abandoned on Sunday after its fans stormed the pitch when the visitors took a 1-0 lead in the 87th minute.
Under league rules, the game should be awarded as a 3-0 win to Panthrakikos, with three points being deducted from AEK. If the sanction is applied, AEK’s first ever relegation in the top division’s 54-year history, is certain.
AEK goalkeeper Yannis Arabatzis was ready to meet an innocuous cross by Panthrakikos’ Dimitris Papadopoulos when 19-year-old defender Mavroudis Bougaidis stuck his leg out and turned the ball into his own net.
Seconds later, Panthrakikos and AEK players sprinted for the tunnel as AEK fans stormed the pitch. The fans, who were targeting their own players rather than the visitors, clashed with police inside and outside the stadium.
Police responded with tear gas and stun grenades. Eventually, the Athens Olympic Stadium was evacuated and police dispersed the AEK fans lingering outside, but the referee decided not to resume the game.

A late goal from substitute Kostas Mitroglou salvaged Olympiakos Pireaus a 1-1 draw in a pulsating Athens derby against Panathinaikos on Sunday. In the Athens derby, an astonishing difference of 37 points separated the two famous Super League rivals ahead of kic-off, but that did not show as Panathinaikos put in an impressive display at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.

  2. Ever since the AEK fan Stratoulis the Syriza MP made the ludicrous accusation that the Golden Dawn attacked him at game by repeatedly kicking in the head resulting in not one scrath or bruise on him I’ve hoped AEK would be relegated and now my wish has come true. HA HA HA HA HA . ZHTO GOLDEN DAWN the best team in Greece.

  3. Amazing these idiots won’t even lift a finger to protest against the rape of Greece by the Trokia and theor own corrupt Colaition Gov’ts selling Greece out by the day. What a bunch of useless moron COWARDS these football fools are!
