Panionios Re-living 1971
Panionios have been the big surprise of this year's Greek Superleague as they currently sit second in the standings after 19 rounds.
Panionios' tremendous season continued over the weekend after their big win over Xanthi (2-0) at the Nea Smyrni Stadium. The result moved the Kyanerythri into second place (tied with PAOK) on 25 points, 13 points behind the leaders Olympiacos.
For the first time since 1971, Panionios sit so high in the standings this far into the season (19 rounds). That season, they claimed second place in the league only behind to the champions, AEK.
