Another not-so-illustrious chapter has been added to the already fierce rivalry between Greek powerhouses PAOK and Olympiacos. 

Before the second leg of the Greek Cup clash between Greece's two most popular sides, PAOK supporters lit thousands of flares to create an amazing scene at Toumba Stadium in Thessaloniki. 

The view from afar was equally breathtaking.

Unfortunately, the match was delayed as a result of said amazing scene. 

To add stink to delay, the PAOK faithful also lined the Olympiacos bench with fish.

The exploits of the PAOK supporters seemed to work, as they saw off their rivals 1-0 after losing the first leg 2-1 in Athens and advancing on away goals.
