-- PAOK STROLL PAST LEVADIAKOS --
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 16
|PAOK||3 - 0||Levadiakos|
Pereyra 60', 76'
PAOK had little trouble overcoming the resistance of Levadiakos as they strolled to a 3-0 victory at Toumba on Thursday. Vladan Ivic’s men were all over their opponents from the start and the result never seemed in doubt.
PAOK opened the scoring through Leo Matos 20 minutes into the match. Diego Biseswar’s excellent ball found Matos. He had still had work to do, but his fantastic first touch and finish combined to score a spectacular strike.
Levadiakos were just hanging on, but just as they were about to get to the half down by only a goal, they were reduced to 10 men. Jackson Mendy being sent off after a second bookable offense for a tackle on Djalma Campos.
PAOK were intent on finishing off the tie in the second half and continued creating chances. On the hour, substitute Facundo Pereyra scored the all-important second goal to effectively end the match as a contest after another assist from Biseswar. The Argentine attacker then secured his brace 16 minutes later after pouncing on a rebound from close range.
The win brings PAOK up to 6th in the table, while Levadiakos endure their 7th straight defeat. On the back of that complete loss of form, the away side are now in real threat of relegation.
