Olympiakos, conqueror of Arsenal at The Emirates Stadium in midweek, confirmed its domination of the Greek game with an imposing performance at PAOK and a 2-0 win on Sunday. Notably five out of the seven visiting teams in the weekend’s games emerged victorious.
The Reds have stretched their perfect record at the start of the Super League season to six out of six, thanks to goals by Brown Ideye and Luca Milivojevic in the first half, and to Spanish goalkeeper Roberto’s heroics in the second.
So within five days, Olympiakos has therefore scored victories at two of the most difficult places it will visit during the course of this season.
Panathinaikos remained three points off the pace as it scored the only goal of its game at Xanthi through Rasmus Thelander seven minutes from time on Saturday. The result is practically keeping Panathinaikos coach Yiannis Anastasiou at his post.
AEK also needed a late header, by Macauley Chrisantus, to down visiting Atromitos 1-0 and stay alone in third, two points behind Panathinaikos and ahead of its derby with Olympiakos in Piraeus.
On Saturday Panionios had an impressive first 23 minutes at Agrinio putting four past host Panetolikos, before winning the game 5-1 in the end. Levadiakos, on the other hand, left it very late to turn things around at Komotini, but still managed to overturn a 1-0 deficit and win 3-1 in the last seven minutes of the game.
Veria left it even later, scoring from the penalty spot in the last minute of injury time at Kalloni Lesvou to snatch a precious 1-0 win, while PAS Giannina and Iraklis shared a gripping 2-2 draw at Ioannina.
On Monday Asteras Tripolis greets Platanias Hanion.
