Late penalty allows Panathinaikos to salvage 1-1 draw against Levadiakos in Greek league
ATHENS, Greece - Danijel Pranjic's 84th-minute penalty allowed Panathinaikos to salvage a 1-1 draw at Levadiakos in its Greek league opener Saturday.
Veteran defender Ilias Kotsios, a former Panathinaikos player, had opened the scoring for Levadiakos in the 77th with a header from a corner kick.
Swedish forward Marcus Berg, Panathinaikos' top scorer last season, broke his collarbone and will likely be out of action for a couple of months, Panathinaikos officials said. Berg had scored all his team's four goals in the 4-1 Europa League win over Denmark's Midtjylland on Thursday.
Also, PAOK stumbled to a 1-1 home draw against Kalloni, Giannena beat Asteras 3-1, Atromitos beat Platanias 1-0 and Veria saw a two-goal advantage over Xanthi negated before snatching a 3-2 victory with a late goal.
