Panathinaikos defender…

Panathinaikos defender Ilias Kotsios (l) protests after being sent off in last Sunday’s 2-0 loss against rival Olympiakos in the season’s opener. A sports tribunal yesterday suspended him for three games. Teammate Nasief Morris, also sent off, was handed a six-game penalty. Panathinaikos, as well as AEK and Atromitos, who met in a scoreless draw Monday, were all ordered to play their next home games before no fans as punishment for violence during the aforementioned matches.
