- Relegation Between Panelefsiniakos & Zakynthos to be Decided by Courts -
GREEK FOOTBALL LEAGUE - MATCHDAY 34
|Lamia||1 - 1||Panelefsiniakos|
|Siatravanis 28'||Ginnitsianis 84'
Panelefsiniakos got the point they were looking for against Lamia (1-1 draw) on the final matchday of the Greek Football League and their safety will be decided by the courts.
Panelefsiniakos needed one point in their final match against Lamia to stay alive for safety in the Football League. Panelefsiniakos fell behind in the first half to indifferent Lamia, until a late goal from Giannitsianis gave the visitors the point they were looking for. With the draw, Panelefsiniakos now awaits the decision from the courts to avoid relegation. The team from Elefsina are currently two points behind 15th placed Zakynthos, who sit in the final safety spot (Zakynthos did not play in the final matchday as they were awarded all three points against Ergotelis). However, if Panelefsiniakos is granted all three points in their match against Apollon Smyrnis (Smyrnis had too many foreign players on the pitch), Panelefsiniakos will jump ahead of Zakynthos and avoid relegation. In that likely scenario, Zakynthos will move to 16th place and join Panachaiki, Ergotelis, and Olympiacos Volou in the Greek 3rd division. Apollon was deducted 6 points for their violation and Panelefsiniakos is expected to get a favorable decision by the courts.
