Olympiacos triumph again in Greece

Olympiacos CFP secured a tenth Super League title in eleven seasons, and their 35th overall, with a comfortable 3-1 victory against Kerkira FC on Sunday.

Olympiacos CFP secured a tenth Super League title in eleven seasons, and their 35th overall, with a 3-1 home victory against Kerkira FC on Sunday.

Comfortable day
Rivaldo set Olympicaos on their way with an early goal and second-half strikes from Predrag Djordjević, from the penalty spot, and Nery Alberto Castillo made the game safe despite Flavinho's consolation for the away side. It means that Olympiacos cannot be caught by AEK Athens FC, who won 5-1 at relegated Ionikos FC today. The champions have a six-point advantage on their rivals, with two games to play, but crucially have the better head-to-head record after a win and a draw this season.

AEK consolation
Olympiacos coach Panagiotis Lemonis was without injured Cyprus strikers Michalis Konstantinou and Yiannis Okkas, but any concerns about a lack of firepower was to prove academic. The club will enter the 2007/08 UEFA Champions League group stage, while AEK can at least content themselves with a spot in the third qualifying round after moving nine points clear of third-placed Panathinaikos FC after they lost 1-0 to visiting Aris Thessaloniki FC. Panathinaikos could still have the Greek Cup as a consolation when they take on Larissa FC on 5 May in Volos.
