-- Olympiacos Breaks AEK’s Record...Barcelona on the Horizon --
Olympiacos defeated Panathinaikos 3-0 at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium, recording their 29th straight victory at home in league play. The win breaks AEK’s record of 28 consecutive home wins that was set in 1993.
It was a great night for Olympiacos on Sunday as they defeated their big rivals Panathinaikos 3-0 and took a 7-point lead in this year’s Superleague Title race. In addition to their emphatic victory, the Erythrolefki set a new record for most consecutive home wins in league play. Olympiacos’ win over Panathinaikos was their 29th consecutive victory at home in the Greek SuperLeague, breaking AEK’s record of 28 straight home wins that was set in 1993.
AEK began their 28-game home win streak in their final 6 games of the 1991/92 season. The streak continued for all 17 home games for the 1992/93 season and ended in 1993 after AEK lost at home to Olympiacos in their 6th home game of the season.
The last time Olympiacos dropped points at home was on December 4, 2014 when the Erythrolefki played to a 2-2 draw against PAS Giannina. Since then, Olympiacos has celebrated victorious at home, recording 29 straight wins at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium and breaking AEK’s record from 1993.
Olympiacos now looks to break Barcelona’s record of 39 consecutive home victories in league play. With Olympiacos having put behind them all three big derbies against PAOK, AEK, and Panathinaikos at home, Barcelona’s record could be broken by Olympiacos this season.
