Panathinaikos and PAOK draw 1-1 in playoff game delayed 25 minutes by fan trouble

  • Print

ATHENS, Greece - Dimitris Salpingidis scored from close range in the 84th minute to help PAOK snatch a 1-1 draw at Panathinaikos in the Greek league playoffs Sunday.

Mladen Petric had opened the scoring for Panathinaikos in the 21st.

The start of the game was delayed by 25 minutes because as soon as some 300 visiting PAOK supporters were seated, fans started exchanging flares and throwing broken seats.

Usually, fans do not attend away games as a precaution against violence.

Earlier, Asteras defeated Atromitos 1-0.

Asteras, Panathinaikos and PAOK have four points and Atromitos has two after the second of six playoff rounds between the teams that finished second to fifth in the regular season.

The playoff winner will join Olympiakos in next season's Champions League, with the others entering the Europa League.
