-- DULL DRAW BETWEEN VERIA & PANETOLIKOS --
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 13
|Veria||1 - 1||Panetolikos|
|Sarpong 30'||Makos 3'|
Veria and Panetolikos played to an unexciting 1-1 draw in Imathia for the 13th matchday of the Greek Superleague. Makos opened the scoring with a beauty in the 4th minute before Sarpong equalized later in the first half.
Panetolikos entered the game on a mission as they pinned Veria in their penalty area in the opening minutes of the game. The pressure quickly paid off as Makos’ tremendous half volley found the top corner of the net, giving Panetolikos the 0-1 lead. The visitors came close on multiple occasions for a second goal in the first 20 minutes, but there missed opportunities were punished in the 30th minute when Sarpong’s powerful header brought Veria level.
From that point on, both teams created minimal chances to score. Warda’s long-ranged effort in the 69th minute was well saved by Lopez and with four minutes remaining, Sarpong’s shot within the penalty area went over the crossbar. The final whistle put an end to a dull fixture that ended in a 1-1 draw.
Neither side will benefit from today's result as Panetolikos sit on 11-points and Veria remain second from bottom. Next weekend, Panetolikos will host Iraklis while Veria will have a tricky away fixture against Asteras Tripolis.
