Unruly Olympiakos Hooligans Hit Opposing Coach in Face with Full Cup of Soda (Video + GIF)

greek soccer coach hit by soda

In the span of just one week, Greek soccer club Olympiakos has gone from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows.

The high? Last Tuesday they got a huge 2-0 victory over Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 matchup, which puts them on the verge of a major upset and a trip to the quarterfinals for the first time in over a decade.

The low? On Sunday, Olympiakos fell behind early to fellow Athenian club Panathinaikos. Then, during a prolonged delay in the second half, their fans completely lost their shit and started throwing everything they could find onto the field—including a full cup of soda, which hit Panathinaikos manager Giannis Anastasiou right in the face.

Take a look:

All in all, Anastasiou is pretty lucky.  Some fans were throwing flares.

Still, that had to sting.
