PAOK puts six past hapless Lokomotiva


PAOK dismantled Lokomotiv Zagreb 6-0 on Thursday at home to win the Europa League second qualifying round tie with a 7-2 aggregate score.

The Thessaloniki giant scored three goals in the first 15 minutes to leave no doubt as to who was the boss of the game at Toumba. Lucas Perez, Robert Mak and Dimitris Pelkas made it 3-0 by the 14th minute, making it a very enjoyable evening for the PAOK fans at the stands.

Before half-time Stelios Kitsiou made it 4-0, as the Croatian defense crumbled in front of the Greek team managed by a Croat, Igor Tudor.

Adding insult to injury, Franko Andrijasevic – scorer of one of Lokomotiva’s goals in the first leg – sent the ball into the wrong net for 5-0, and Mak scored his second of the evening for the final 6-0.

Next Thursday PAOK will face Slovakia’s Spartak Trnava in the third qualifying round.
