Olympiakos Volou only tier-two team in last 8 of Cup

By George Georgakopoulos

Olympiakos Piraeus, PAOK, Panionios and Olympiakos Volou have joined Panathinaikos, Atromitos, Apollon and OFI Crete in the quarterfinals of the Greek Cup after seeing off their round-of-16 opponents in midweek.

Football League leader Olympiakos Volou became the only second-division team to make it into the last eight of the competition beating fellow tier-two team Asteras Magoulas with a 2-1 win away on Thursday for an aggregate triumph of 4-1. The Volos club will face Panathinaikos in the quarterfinals.

Holder Olympiakos Piraeus scored a second win over Asteras Tripolis, this time by just 1-0 at Tripoli, through a Marko Scepovic strike 11 minutes from time, for an aggregate 5-0 victory. In the next round Olympiakos will play Atromitos.

PAOK had beaten Iraklis 1-0 in the first leg and fell behind to its crosstown rival early in the second leg at home. Its response was quite emphatic, though, as it won 5-1 on Wednesday and 6-1 on aggregate to set up a quarterfinal clash with Apollon Smyrnis. Miroslav Stoch scored a brace for PAOK, while new signing Maarten Martens was also on target.

Panionios recovered from the first-leg loss at second-division Aiginiakos with a 1-0 score, to win 3-0 at Nea Smyrni on Thursday and 3-1 on aggregate and start bracing for its clash with OFI.
