AEK Athens goalkeeper Sebastian Saja was struck by a flare during a tense Greek Cup encounter against PAOK on Wednesday evening.

The Athens outfit advanced to the final after Traianos Dellas scored moments after the half-time interval but the match will be remembered for a number of unsavoury incidents in the Toumba Stadium.

The referee was forced to halt the game for five minutes after the Argentine goalkeeper was hit by a flare thrown by the home side's supporters midway through the second half, according to the Associated Press.

The 31-year-old was not seriously injured after the missile hit him in the back and he was up on his feet moments later.

PAOK supporters then stormed the pitch in the 89th minute and players from both teams along with the referee were chased off the field.

AEK Athens will now lock horns with Atromitos in the final on April 30.
