PAOK's 2-1 loss at Asteras allows Greek league leader Olympiakos to open up 20-point gap

  • Print

ATHENS, Greece - Dorin Goian and Juanma took advantage of some slack defending as Asteras came from a goal down to beat second-place PAOK 2-1 in the Greek league on Sunday.

Klaus Athanassiadis put PAOK ahead on the hour mark, only for Goian to level five minutes later and Juanma to score the winner in the 78th as Asteras remained fifth in the standings.

Defeat allowed leader Olympiakos, a 4-2 winner over Platanias on Saturday, to open up a 20-point gap over PAOK with nine rounds left.

Third-place Atromitos, which lost 1-0 at Levadiakos on Saturday, stayed two points behind PAOK.

Panathinaikos, which beat Panthrakikos 2-0 on Sunday, is fourth.

Elsewhere, Panetolikos beat Apollon 2-1 and the two bottom teams, Aris and Veria, played to a scoreless draw.
