Greek soccer clubs in legal fight at CAS
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Greek champion Olympiakos is seeking to have PAOK Thessaloniki relegated from the league at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Both clubs have filed appeals to CAS in a case which could decide which other Greek team reaches the qualifying rounds of next season’s Champions League. Olympiakos wants defending champion PAOK to be relegated for breaching ownership rules. PAOK is trying to overturn a seven-point deduction which dropped it to third place in a championship playoff group. The Greek league runner-up enters the second qualifying round of the Champions League in August. Olympiakos will start in the third preliminary round in September.
