Mitroglou hat-trick sees Reds thrash Levadiakos

By George Georgakopoulos

Greece striker Costas Mitroglou enjoyed his first career hat-trick leading Olympiakos to a 5-0 thrashing of host Levadiakos as the Reds preserved their 100 percent record after the first three rounds of games in the Super League. PAOK also scored an emphatic win on Sunday, beating Panionios 4-1 at home to rise to joint second along with new boys Kalloni of Lesvos.

Former Argentine international Javier Saviola opened the scoring for Olympiakos at Livadia from the penalty spot in the first half, with Mitroglou scoring three times in the last 20 minutes and Vladimir Weiss adding one more for the Reds.

PAOK needed a Dimitris Salpingidis goal, set up by Stefanos Athanasiadis who appeared to elbow a defender away, before Slovak winger Miroslav Stoch scored twice (one goal coming from a penalty) and set up one more for Stelios Kitsiou.

In other Sunday games Asteras Tripolis scored its first win downing Apollon 2-0 at home, while Panthrakikos saw off visiting Panetolikos 2-1.

On Monday Atromitos beat Aris 2-0 to leave the popular Thessaloniki club rock bottom with no points after three games, and OFI Crete shared a goalless draw in the Cretan derby with Platanias Hanion at Iraklio.

The league is now taking a one-week recess due to Greece’s games for the World Cup qualifiers on September 6 and 10 against Liechtenstein and Latvia respectively.
