Olympiacos’ Penalties Reduced
Olympiacos’ penalties for the incidents against AEK in the first leg of the Greek Cup semi-finals were reduced to a 1-game closed stadium ban and a €95,000 fine.
The Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) Appeals Committee reduced the penalties that were originally given to Olympiacos for the incidents against AEK in the Greek Cup Semi-finals. EPO’s Disciplinary Committee decided last week to penalize the Erythrolefki with a fine of €150,000 and a 4 match closed stadium ban (served next season), however after today’s decision by the Appeals Committee, Olympiacos’ penalty was reduced to a 1-match closed stadium ban and a €95,000 fine.
On the other hand, PAOK’s appeal for the same case was rejected which officially eliminated the threat of a point deduction for Olympiacos, confirming the Erythrolefki as this year’s Greek Superleague Champions.
In another case that involved Francois Modesto’s actions during the return leg at the OAKA stadium against AEK, EPO’s Disciplinary Committee handed Olympiacos an additional one-game closed stadium ban and €30,000 fine. Modesto was also penalized with a 15 month ban from all stadium activity. However, the Piraeus club will appeal this decision with hopes of reducing the fine and removing the one-match closed stadium ban.
