-- ANSARIFARD SHOWS THE WAY ON OLYMPIACOS DEBUT --
GREEK SOCCER CUP - ROUND OF 16 (LEG 1)
|Aris||1 - 1||Olympiacos|
|Milunovic 13'||Ansarifard 80'|
Karim Ansarifard wasted no time to register his first goal for his new club, salvaging a 1-1 draw for Olympiacos against Aris. Milunovic opened the scoring for the hosts in the first half.
Olympiacos will take a small advantage into their second leg encounter against Aris, after the two teams played to a 1-1 draw in Thessaloniki.
The hosts struck first, shocking the Erythrolefki in the 13th minute when Milunovic opened the scoring from inside the penalty area.
As expected, the visitors did see most of the possession and created chances to pull level, but Dioudis denied Olympiacos on multiple occasions. It was the Olympiacos new boy that came through in the end as he scored his first goal for the club (on his debut) to equalize 10 minutes from time.
Despite the draw at home, Aris will contest a place in the quarterfinals in one week’s team when the two teams face off in the second leg.
