- Platanias Remains Undefeated -
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 5
|PAS Giannina||0 - 0||Platanias|
Platanias earned a point in Giannina after a goalless draw against PAS and remained undefeated after 3 games in the SuperLeague. PAS Giannina was unable to earn 3 points after last week’s heavy loss to Panathinaikos.
The match had little pace as many stoppages prevented either team from finding a rhythm. It seemed that both managers wanted to avoid defeat by placing emphasis on the clean sheet while looking for a “winner” on the counterattack. The first half was one of the worst of the season with minimal chances for either side.
The game picked up in the second half with the first actual chance of the match falling to Platanias in the 55th minute with Giakoumakis’ shot going over the bar. PAS Giannina responded with two opportunities, first Nadales’ header was well saved by Sotiriou and from the ensuing corner Skondras’ header was cleared off the line. In the 89th minute, Lila was sent off with a second yellow card, leaving PAS Giannina with 10 men. Platanias came close to making the man advantage count in the final minute, but again Giakoumakis was unable to find the target.
Platanias now sit ATOP the SuperLeague standings with 2 wins and a draw while PAS Giannina move up to four points with 1 win, 1 draw, and a loss. Both teams will look for all three points in next week's encounter as Platanias hosts Panetolikos and PAS Giannina travels to Kerkyra.
