No home comfort for Olympiakos

Olympiakos Piraeus FC have banned from their home ground, the Gipedo Rizoupolis stadium, for two matches.
The disciplinary committee of the Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) has announced that Olympiakos Piraeus FC will be banned from their home ground, the Gipedo Rizoupolis stadium, for two matches.

Officials attacked
The sanction was imposed following an incident at last Sunday's league derby against AEK Athens FC, when senior AEK officials, including club president Giannis Granitsas, were attacked by Olympiakos supporters in the VIP area. Olympiakos have also been fined €8,000, but have announced their intention to appeal. They lost the game 2-1.

Neutral venues
The ban means that Olympiakos's matches against Aris Thessaloniki FC next Sunday, and Egaleo FC on 20 April, will be played at neutral venues, although the club will return to the Gipedo Rizoupolis for the derby against Panathinaikos FC on 11 May.
