-- Draw Specialists Larissa Drop More Points --
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 19
|Larissa||1 - 1||Kerkyra|
|Nazlidis 80'||Nikic 84'|
Larissa failed to capitalize on a one-goal lead for the second week running as the SuperLeague draw specialists were held at home by Kerkyra on Saturday in the first game of the Matchday 19 fixtures.
Having being held by fellow strugglers Iraklis 1-1 last weekend after going ahead, history repeated itself at the AEL FC Arena, with Thomas Nazlidis giving the hosts an 80th minute lead and hope of a morale-boosting three-point haul.
But Kerkyra’s Bosnia & Herzegovina striker Branislav Nikic levelled matters four minutes later to win a point for the visitors - a result which saw Larissa chalk up their ninth draw in 18 matches, the most of any other team in the league.
The draw means Larissa are four points above the drop zone in 13th place with 17 points, while Kerkyra are just one place and two points above them in 12th.
