THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) - A Greek Cup semifinal match between PAOK and defending champion Olympiakos has been called off in the final minute after home fans threw flares and clashed with riot police on the pitch.

The first-leg match at Toumba Stadium in the northern city of Thessaloniki was stopped in the 90th minute as visiting Olympiakos led 2-1.

Violence broke out after PAOK was denied a late penalty. Police fired tear gas to disperse fans on the pitch.

Olympiakos came from behind after PAOK’s Robert Mak scored in the 9th minute, with Luka Milivojevic and Esteban Cambiasso netting for the visitors before halftime.
