Larissa got the better of Xanthi beating the Super League club 1-0 on Wednesday to become the first team from the second division to go through from the group stage, while Panetolikos went down 3-2 at second-division Ergotelis on Thursday and is mathematically eliminated from the Cup.

Olympiakos dismissed Panaigialios 4-0 away on Wednesday and is on the verge of qualifying, while AEK and Panathinaikos have already done that as the former downed Panelefsiniakos 6-0 at home and the latter saw off Panachaiki 2-1 away on Thursday.

Asteras Tripolis braved the very poor pitch conditions on Crete and defeated Kissamikos 3-1, while PAOK visited Kissamikos’s neighbor Hania and won 6-2.

In other group games it was Panionios 1 Zakynthos 0, Iraklis 4 Anagennisi Karditsas 0, Panthrakikos 1 Olympiakos Volou 0, Levadiakos 2 Kerkyra 0, Platanias 3 Apollon Smyrnis 1, Lamia 0 Atromitos 2, Veria 1 Kallithea 0, Kalloni Lesvou 2 Panserraikos 1, and Acharnaikos 1 PAS Giannina 2,
