-- PANIONIOS FAIL TO PAS GIANNINA TEST --
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 16
|PAS Giannina||1 - 0||Panionios|
Alexios Michail scored the only goal of the game as Panionios came unstuck at PAS Giannina in their Matchday 16 encounter at the Zosimades Stadium.
In another match played under a downpour of rain on a soaking pitch, Michail’s header from a free-kick set-piece after 18 minutes proved to be the difference between the two sides on the night.
It was a first defeat in eight matches for in-form Panionios, who hold on to third place in the table. The Nea Smyrni side are just two points ahead of Panathinaikos, however, and the Greens can overtake them if they beat Platanias on Thursday night.
The win moved PAS three points clear of AEK into fifth place, with the boys from Giannina putting themselves firmly into contention for a place in the end of season playoffs which determine Greece’s European places.
