Panathinaikos Given Huge Punishment

Panathinaikos has been docked five points and been told to play four games behind closed doors as punishment for crowd violence, in the stiffest penalty imposed by the Greek Super League yet.
The league’s disciplinary committee handed down the punishment on Friday after Panathinaikos’s derby match against Olympiakos at the Olympic Stadium last Saturday was abandoned after being interrupted twice by crowd trouble.
The league said the match would be recorded as a 3-0 loss for Panathinaikos who would also pay a fine of 252,500 euros for failing to maintain order at the game. The club was deducted three points from this season and two points from the 2012-13 season.
The strict penalties are part of a new sports law which the Greek government passed in February aiming to clamp down on football violence.
