Larissa Closes in on Promotion, Zakynthos Inches Closer to Relegation

Larissa defeated Panserraikos 1-0 and closed in on promotion to the SuperLeague. On the other hand, Zakynthos fell to Lamia 1-0 and their lead in the “safety zone” was decreased after both Panelefsianiakos and Panachaiki got all three points.

After today’s difficult 1-0 victory against Panserraikos, Larissa is only one point away from securing their place in next year’s SuperLeague. In the 68th minute, Koutsianikoulis scored the winning goal for the home side with a beautiful right-footed strike. Near the end of the game, Larissa failed to increase their lead after being denied from the penalty spot.

Zakynthos fell to indifferent Lamia 1-0 and now sits only 3 points clear of the relegation zone. Their 6 point advantage was trimmed after Panelefsiniakos defeated Agrotikos Asteras on Friday. Zakynthos is in 15th place, holding the final safety spot from relegation. Panelefsiniakos and Panachaiki are both in the relegation zone and are tied on 28 points (3 behind Zakynthos). Panachaiki was awarded today’s victory against Olympiacos Volou, who has been removed from the Football League.
