-- Platanias Record First Victory Over PAS Giannina --
GREEK SOCCER CUP - ROUND OF 16 (LEG 1)
|Platanias||1 - 0||PAS Giannina|
Platanias celebrated their first ever victory over PAS Giannina as they defeated the Epirotes 1-0 in the first of two matches for the Greek Cup Round of 16. Apostolopoulos scored the only goal of the game in the 49th minute.
Platanias have the upper hand over PAS Giannina for a place in the Greek Cup quarter finals after their 1-0 win at home in the first leg. The deciding goal was scored in the 49th minute when a great ball from Goundoulakis found Apostolopoulos inside the penalty area and the 25-year old made no mistake to give the hosts the lead.
The Cretan side dominated the game and could have walked away with a more “secure” scoreline before next week’s second leg match, however Peristeridis kept his side within one goal on aggregate.
Today’s win is Platanias’ first over PAS Giannina in the club’s history. The two teams had met on nine previous occasions before today’s match. Next week, the two teams will meet again in Giannina for the second leg and a place in the Greek Cup quarterfinals.
