ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek police say four visiting Bayern Munich fans have been injured during an attack by suspected Olympiakos supporters ahead of the two clubs' Champions League match.

No arrests were reported, and the extent of the four Bayern fans' injuries was not immediately known.

Olympiakos hosts Bayern later Tuesday.

Police said about 1,600 German fans have travelled to Greece for the Group B match.
