AEK climbs out of the drop zone

 Aris hires Spaniard Lucas Alcaraz
Andreas Stamatis scored AEK's winner and his second for the club. He and his father, Stavros, are the only father-and-son pair to have scored for AEK in the club's history.

By George Georgakopoulos

AEK scored a desperately needed 2-1 win over PAS Giannina on Monday to crawl out of the relegation zone for the first time since the start of the Super League season.

Playing at home in front of a few faithful fans at the Olympic Stadium, AEK scored through youngsters Taxiarchis Foundas and Andreas Stamatis, while also having a Roger Guerreiro penalty saved by PAS Giannina keeper Karim Fegrouche. PAS had equalized via Alexis Michael.

The result has taken AEK to the 14th position in the 16-team table, with the bottom two destined for relegation, However, all four teams at the bottom of the table have 11 points and are only separated by their head-to-head records. PAS remained in seventh.

Also on Monday Aris announced the hiring of Spanish coach Lucas Alcaraz, to replace sacked Nikos Passialis, while Xanthi has brought back Marinos Ouzounidis, whom it had started the season with after dismissing Nikos Costenoglou.
