Olympiacos and PAOK continued their unbeaten run in the Greek Super League on Sunday with impressive away from home performances against Asteras Tripoli and Panetolikos respectively.
The two giants share top spot with 34 points in 14 games, ten more than third-placed AEK and they prove once more that they are hot favorites for the Greek title.
Olympiacos thrashed 10-man Asteras 5-0 at Tripoli on Sunday. El Arabi and Giorgos Masouras scored twice and Daniel Podence scored another for the Piraeus club. Asteras had to play most of the game with 10 players as Triantafyllos Pasalidis was send off on the 16th minute for a rush challenge.
PAOK recorded an easy 3-0 win at Agrinio against bottom-of-the league Panetolikos. The reigning champions took the lead on the 7th minute through Dimitris Pelkas. Dimitris Limnios and Chuba Akpom added two more in the second half.
AEK celebrated on Saturday night a narrow away win over Xanthi thanks to solitary late strike from midfielder Kostas Galanopoulos in the debut of Italian coach Massimo Carrera, whereas Panathinaikos climbed to fifth in the Super League table thanks to a comfortable 2-0 win over Lamia at the OAKA in Athens.
