Apollon sit first in Group 3 tied with AEK on three points. Highlights here.
Aris took a big leap towards the Greek Cup knockout stages after prevailing with a narrow 0-1 away win over Panegialios. Platellas’ 68th minute goal gave the Kitrinomavri all three points as they sit atop the Group 8 table after Panionios and PAS Giannina played to a 1-1 draw earlier today. The Greek player scored just only eight minutes after being subbed onto the pitch in what was a dream debut for the former Atromitos man. Highlights here.
