Olympiakos beats Manchester City on penalties in International Challenge Cup
MINNEAPOLIS - Dimitrios Diamantakos scored twice in regulation and Roberto Jimenez Gago made two saves in a shootout to help Olympiakos beat Manchester City 5-4 on penalty kicks Saturday after a 2-2 tie in the International Challenge Cup game.
Aleksander Kolarov put the Premier League champions 2-1 up in the 53rd minute with a penalty after David Silva was tripped in the Olympiakos box.
But Diamantakos tied it in the 65th minute when he picked up a pass at the top of the box, made a move to get past goalkeeper Joe Hart and blasted it into the open net
Manchester City opened the scoring on Stevan Jovetic's goal in the 35th minute. Jovetic took a pass from Samir Nasri, dribbled past one defender, then split two others with a right-footed shot that beat a flat-footed Jimenez Gago. Two minutes later, Diamantakos tied it for Olympiakos.
