Arabs take over Athens as rival fans banned
Dundee United's Europa League qualifier second-leg against AEK Athens will now only be attended by 600 Arabs supporters after opposition fans were banned.
The venue for the game has already been changed twice and will now be staged at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium, the home of AEK's Athens rivals, Olympiakos.
However, AEK fans won't be allowed entry over fears of potential clashes between their followers and those of Olympiakos.
The original venue, Olympic Stadium, was ruled unplayable at the beginning of the week and the tie was changed to Nea Smyrni Stadium, which is the 11,700-capacity Athens home of Greek Superleague rivals Panionios.
But Panionios fans angry at the switch entered the Nea Smyrni Stadium that same evening and wrecked their own pitch and damaged goalposts in protest.
And as neighbours Panathinaikos' ground had already been discounted due to the condition of their pitch, AEK subsequently turned to Olympiakos.
