Baku, March 5, AZERTAC

The Greek government on Wednesday decided to allow the country's Super League matches to go ahead this weekend after last week's postponement due to crowd violence.

But the games will all be played behind closed doors, deputy sports minister Stavros Kontonis announced.

The decision was taken after the government received assurances that steps would be taken in future to combat public disorder at matches.

The government suspended all of last week’s Super League matches for the third time this season following violence between supporters of rival Athens teams Olympiakos and Panathinaikos the previous weekend.
