Olympiacos players celebrate a difficult win against Asteras Tripolis on Sunday night

AEK, PAOK, Olympiacos and Panathinaikos extended their perfect start to the Super League season to three wins in as many matches.

Champion AEK dispatched Panionios 4-0 at the Olympic Stadium with consummate ease on Saturday night with the goals scored by Ezequiel Ponce, Tasos Bakasetas and Viktor Klonaridis.

There could have been more goals for AEK, but captain Petros Mantalos and Klonaridis both hit the woodwork in the second half.

AEK shares the top spot with Olympiacos on 9 points.

Israeli midfielder Bibras Natcho came to rescue for Olympiacos on Sunday, netting a last gasp goal in added time to the Piraeus club a hard-earned 2-1 home win over battling Asteras Tripolis at the Georgios Karaiskakis stadium.

PAOK scored a significant 3-1 victory at OFI Crete on Saturday and is on seven points as it started the season from minus two. The Cup winner came from behind, after Manolis Papasterianos’s goal for OFI, through strikes by Diego Biseswar, Leo Matos and Leo Jaba.

Panathinaikos continued their tremendous start to the season taking down Larissa 1-3 at the AEL FC Arena.
