PAOK, Panionios and Larissa have taken the upper hand in their ties after the first leg of the Greek Cup quarterfinals in midweek, while the Olympiakos vs AEK derby ended in a stalemate.
The Reds and the Yellows played out a dull first-leg game at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium on Wednesday, in which Olympiakos was mostly dominant but could not find a way through the AEK defense. The two rivals will therefore have everything to play for come the second leg on February 7.
PAOK defeated Atromitos 2-0 in Thessaloniki to take a solid lead to the second leg that takes place on February 8 in Peristeri. Dimitris Pelkas and Yevhen Shakhov were on target for the holder.
Panionios needed a spectacular team effort that culminated in a Giorgos Massouras volley for a 1-0 win over visiting Lamia, the team that had eliminated Panathinaikos in the previous round.
Larissa did it the hard way on Thursday, as it trailed host PAS Giannina to a Pedro Conde goal before bouncing back to win 2-1 through a brace by Yiannis Massouras.
