ATHENS (Reuters) – At least six Bayern Munich supporters were injured during clashes with hooded people who stormed the pitch during a youth game in Athens, police officials said on Tuesday.
The UEFA Youth League game between Bayern Munich and Olympiakos was halted at the 84th minute, after a group of about 80 hooded people riding motorcycles and carrying bats and sticks stormed the pitch and attacked the fans in the stands.
Olympiakos was trailing 4-0 when the violence erupted, just hours before a Champions League game between the two teams at the Karaiskaki Stadium in Piraeus.
A security guard was also injured, a police official said, adding that there were no arrests so far.
“The intruders have nothing to do … whatsoever with the Olympiakos family,” Olympiakos said in a statement.
