Olympiacos secured their Super League title in Greek soccer on Wednesday with a win against rivals PAOK at the Thessaloniki Toumba Stadium.

The team from Piraeus came back from a 1-0 deficit to score twice in the second half and celebrate its 47th League title.

PAOK led early on through a Thomas Murg goal from close range, but two beautiful goals in the second half by Rony Lopes and Oleg Reabciuk gave Olympiacos all three points and an unassailable lead of 16 points with four games left in the playoffs.

Olympiacos is the most successful soccer club in Greece

Founded on March 10, 1925, Olympiacos is the most successful club in Greek football history, having won 47 League titles, 28 Cups (18 Doubles), and 4 Super Cups, all records.

Τotaling 79 national trophies, Olympiacos is 9th in the world in total titles won by a football club.

In European competitions, Olympiacos’ best performances are their presence in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals in 1998–1999, losing the semi-final spot in the last minutes of their second leg match against Juventus, as well as in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-finals in 1992–1993.

The Red-Whites are by far the highest-ranked Greek club in the UEFA rankings, occupying the 37th place in Europe in the five-year ranking and the 30th in the ten-year ranking as of 2021.
