    The Athens derby between Panathinaikos and Olympiakos was abandoned on Sunday after serious rioting broke out between home fans and the police.
    Police announced that 57 people had been detained and a further 20 arrested, while nine police officers were injured, two of them seriously.

    Clashes between police and fans started before the game, when hundreds of youths without tickets tried to enter the stadium. The conflict continued throughout, forcing the second half to start 35 minutes late.
    A group of about 200 hooded individuals were seated in a VIP section, next to the players' tunnel. Some of them carried clubs and iron bars. They were confronted by a line of riot police on the other side of a trough, who they attacked at halftime.

    At one stage, about 30 of the hooded hooligans isolated two policemen and attacked them with clubs and bars. The beating went on for about five minutes before another detachment of riot police came to their colleagues' rescue.
    In the second half, Panathinaikos fans set fire to seats in the upper and lower decks of the stadium. Referee Tassos Kakos then abandoned the game when firebombs were added to the mix of projectiles thrown at police and photographers.

    The firebombs - which were also thrown at police outside the stadium - were water bottles filled with gasoline, liquid ammonia and sticks of dynamite.
    The stadium's electronic scoreboard caught fire and was damaged. Fire trucks entered the stadium's track to put out the fires but were attacked by fans, so trucks with water cannons were used instead.

    Olympiakos, four points ahead of Panathinaikos before the game, were leading 1-0 from Djamel Abdoun’s 51st-minute goal when trouble flared up.
    No Olympiakos fans attended the game at Olympic Stadium in accordance with a league policy not to allow visiting fans due to fears of violence.

    'We dedicated several thousand personnel to policing the game and we faced, beginning two hours before the game started, escalating attacks,' police spokesman Athanassios Kokalakis said.
    Sports general secretary Panos Bitsaxis said on television that the state had taken 'the best possible security measures' and accused football clubs of doing nothing to curb the fanatical supporters and of opposing the state's attempts to impose tougher sanctions.

    Bitsaxis left open the option of postponing the next round.
    According to league rules, Panathinaikos is facing having three points deducted and a steep fine and could play several games in front of empty stands. They could also face a two-point deduction.

    'The noise was so much that the players could not concentrate,' Olympiakos coach Ernesto Valverde said.
    'We had been co-operating with the police for almost a month in preparation for the game,' league general manager Michalis Anagnostou said. 'The result was not what we wished for.'

    Hooliganism is still alive and well in the Balkans and other Eastern European countries. Not to mention South America.

    just so I'm clear on this, they were rioting and beating the shit out of police during the first half, but it wasn't until firebombs started being thrown on the pitch in the second half that the match was abandoned? they need to start televising more of these games. I'd buy the next match on pay-per-view.

    Me too for some strange reason. I know is bad overall for the sport, it brings horrible attention and not to mention that many people get injured and even die. But I am fascinated by hooliganism.

    Friend of mine plays in the Greek A1 basketball league. I visited him last year and saw him play, it was the wildest sports atmosphere I've ever been a part of. One side of the stadium is for the regular fans and the other is for the diehards/hooligans. 15 minutes before the game, the die hards started chanting (I guess like at soccer matches) and just going crazy in general. I was sitting next to my friend's agent (Greek-American) and asked him what they were saying and he said stuff along the lines of "Fuck your mother in the ass" and "we will rape your sister" among other things. Very loud and intimidating.

    During a game against Olympiakos earlier in the year, the die hards threw a flare on the court and stopped the game for 20 minutes.
