Olympiacos close on Greek title

Olympiacos CFP will look to clinch a tenth Super League title in eleven seasons, and their 35th overall, when they visit Kerkira FC on Sunday.

Lemonis expectation
With the leaders six points clear of second-placed AEK Athens FC with three matches remaining, victory in Corfu will confirm Olympiacos as Greek champions again as they hold a superior head-to-head record from their games with AEK, having recorded a win and a draw. "We need three points to win the league and we expect to get them sooner rather than later - and to celebrate the title in our next match against Kerkira," said Olympiacos coach Panagiotis Lemonis. "However, it will be difficult as Kerkira are fighting to avoid relegation."

Strikers absent
Lemonis will be without injured Cyprus strikers Michalis Konstantinou and Yiannis Okkas for the trip to Kerkira, who are 13th in the standings, while defensive midfielder Yiannis Taralidis is also missing. AEK too are on their travels against opponents at the wrong end of the table, playing relegated Ionikos FC, while Panathinaikos FC, who reached the Greek Cup final in midweek, host Aris Thessaloniki FC in the Olympic Stadium in Athens, venue for next month's UEFA Champions League final.
