Scepovic scores hat-trick to lead Olympiakos to 4-0 away victory in Greek league

  • Print

ATHENS, Greece - Marko Scepovic scored a hat trick to lead Olympiakos to a 4-0 victory at OFI in the Greek league Saturday.

Scepovic, playing in his seventh game this season, saw all his three shots at goal find the net, in the 42nd, 52nd and 88th minutes. Paulo Machado had opened the scoring in the 39th.

Olympiakos remains undefeated after 26 rounds, 23 points ahead of PAOK, which hosts Panthrakikos Sunday.

The bad news for Olympiakos is that Scepovic is not eligible to play in Tuesday's Champions league round of 16 first-leg home game against Manchester United. Worse still, veteran striker Javier Saviola, whom Scepovic replaced in the 33rd, has injured his left thigh and is doubtful for Tuesday.

Also, Levadiakos beat Asteras 3-1 and Panionios won 2-1 at Apollon.
