Panionios to the Playoffs!

GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 28

Panionios 3 - 1 PAOK
Bakaseta 40', 66'
Ansarifard 82'
Tziolis 52'

Panionios got all three points against PAOK clinching their place in the SuperLeague playoffs. On the other hand, PAOK will have to get good results in their final two games to close the final playoff spot, despite PAS Giannina losing points in their 1-1 draw against Levadiakos. Platanias, who now sits only one point behind PAOK, defeated Xanthi 3-1.

Panionios continued their magical SuperLeague season by clinching a place in the playoffs after defeating PAOK 3-1. Bakasetas opened the score for the home side before Tziolis equalized for POAK at the beginning of the second half. It was not enough for the visitors as Bakasetas scored his second and Ansarifard secured the victory with a third eight minutes before the end. Additionally, Dioudis made incredible saves throughout the match keeping PAOK to only one goal. After today’s defeat, PAOK only sits one point ahead of Platanias for the final playoff spot. A reminder that PAOK was deducted 5 points for their fan violence during the Greek Cup semi-final against Olympiacos. The Thessalonikiotes have appealed the decision hoping to reduce the point deduction

In Livadia, it seemed that PAS Giannina was going to get all three points when the Epirotes opened the score five minutes before the end. However, the home side equalized in the final minute taking two valuable points away from the visitors. The team from Giannina still hopes for a place in the playoffs and will wait on the final decision on PAOK’s 5 point punishment.

Platanias earned an important victory against Xanthi in their quest for the playoffs. The 3-1 win puts them at 38 points, one point behind PAOK. On the final Matchday Platanias hosts PAOK, which could be the ultimate decider for the 4th and final playoff spot.
