Olympiacos rattled by PAOK

FC PAOK upset the odds in Greece by inflicting a 2-1 defeat on leaders Olympiacos CFP.

FC PAOK’s 2-1 defeat of reigning Hellenic National League champions Olympiacos CFP on Sunday ensured the second half of the season in Greece began in unexpected fashion.

Precious triumph
It was only the second league loss of the campaign for Oleg Protasov's side, who fell at home against the Thessaloniki team for the first time in 15 years. A goal from Uruguayan midfield player Nery Alberto Castillo put Olympiacos ahead in the 66th minute but the visitors equalised though Dimitris Salpingidis and substitute Sladjan Spasic slammed in following a swift upfield move to secure the triumph.

Sapanis goal
Second-placed Panathinaikos FC capitalised on the slip-up, beating Xanthi FC 1-0 to move within a point of the leaders. The Athens team were nevertheless unable to build on a fourth-minute goal from Miltiadis Sapanis.

Spoils shared
Egaleo FC and AEK Athens FC, in fourth and fifth position respectively, fought out a 2-2 draw in a predictably tight affair. Manolis Psomas levelled for the away team after Kostas Katsouranis had given AEK the lead, but Nikos Lyberopoulos restored the home side’s advantage before Psomas was again on target, ensuring a share of the spoils.

Other games
Elsewhere, OFI Crete FC's encounter with Iraklis FC finished 2-2 while Halkidona FC overcame penultimate-placed Proodeftiki FC 2-1. FC Aris Thessaloniki outclassed bottom team Akratitos FC 3-0 and Ionikos FC prevailed 1-0 on their travels against Kallithea FC. Paniliakos FC and Panionios NFC, meanwhile, fought out a goalless draw.
