-- RELEGATION SIX POINTER ENDS IN DRAW --
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 16
|Veria||1 - 1||Larissa|
|Sarpong 69'||Ilkaunieks 45'|
Veria and Larissa shared the points after a tightly contested affair between the two SuperLeague strugglers ended in a 1-1 draw on Wednesday - a result which will satisfy neither side as they look to avoid a relegation dogfight.
In another encounter played on a heavy pitch in wet conditions, Larissa’s Latvian midfielder put the Vissini in front on the stroke of half-time, but his strike was levelled by Dutchman Jeffrey Sarpong’s spectacular 69th-minute freekick goal for the hosts.
The outcome leaves Larissa in 13th with 14 points from 15 matches, while Veria, who have also only played 15 matches, remain 14th just two points further behind.
