THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) -Greece police have arrested seven Rapid Vienna fans after clashes with PAOK supporters broke out in the stands shortly before the teams' Europa League match in northern Greece.

Police said Monday they arrested five Austrians, one Pole and a Croat on Sunday night.

No injuries were reported from the clashes, and the game for the first leg of the playoff round started with just a few minutes' delay.

Police say the violence started when Rapid Vienna fans fired flares at PAOK supporters, who responded in kind. About 700 Rapid Vienna supporters travelled to Thessaloniki for the match.
