GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 8
|PAS Giannina||4 - 0||Larissa|
|Conde 10', 52', 74'
Despite playing their first match in almost a month, PAS Giannina blew away Larissa 4-0 at the Zosimades Stadium for the 8th Matchday of the SuperLeague. Conde scored a hatrick for the hosts and Giakos added a beauty in the 27th minute. On the other hand, Larissa will want to quickly forget today’s tragic showing.
Both teams gave the game a quick pace early on, but it was PAS Giannina who took the lead in the 10th minute after a poor clearance from Kavousakis gave Conde an easy task in front of an open goal. With Larissa unable to provide a response, in the 27th minute PAS Giannina doubled their lead with a beautiful goal from Giakos. After the second goal, Larissa improved their presence on the pitch by possessing the ball, however they did not record a good chance on goal to get back into the game as they trailed by two goals at halftime.
Despite Larissa getting off to a better start in the second 45 minutes, it was PAS Giannina who sealed their victory with a counterattack that was set up by a great solo effort from Jairo and cleverly finished by Conde, scoring his second goal of the game. PAS Giannina was content with the 3-0 lead, however they continued to press Larissa and Conde capped off a great night for himself and his side scoring a hattrick to give PAS Giannina the 4-0 win.
PAS Giannina, who finished sixth in last year’s Superleague, have 10 points with one game in hand while Larissa remain on 5 points after their second consecutive defeat. Next week, Larissa host a tough Panionios side as PAS Giannina travels to Agrinio to Panetolikos.
