Greek Derby Ends in a Draw; Atromitos Sinks AEK

Eternal rivals Olympiacos and Panathinaikos shared a point each after the 1-1 draw at Piraeus on Sunday evening.

Panathinaikos took the lead just after the hour mark with a spectacular volley by Ergys Kace, and Olympiacos found the equalizer five minutes into the time added-on via Pape Abou Cisse.

Atromitos is practically left alone in the chase for the leader of PAOK, by virtue of its 2-0 win at champion AEK with two last-gasp goals from Spyros Risvanis and Efthymis Koulouris.

Last season, Atromitos were the Super League’s surprise package with a run to fourth place in the standings; however Damir Canadi’s men seem intent on bettering that record.

PAOK held on to the leadership of the SuperLeague on Sunday after grinding out a hard-fought 2-1 home win over a spirited Panaitolikos side at the Toumba in Thessaloniki.
