The game will be played on 12 October before an empty house. Olympiacos is carrying a penalty that is forcing them to open the 2013/14 season by playing games behind closed doors following crowd trouble last season. In Game 3 of the Greek League Finals last season the match was abandoned with 1.27 left and eventually awarded to Panathinaikos 20-0. This gave the Greens a 3-0 sweep of the series. The return game in the OAKA will be played on 18 January.
Here’s the full list of fixtures for Round 1 of the 2013/14 Greek League:
KAOD vs Aris
Aries Trikala vs AE Nea Kifisia
Panelefsiniakos vs Panionios
