Chavez and Molins send Panathinaikos past Larissa
GREEK CUP - MATCHDAY 1
|Panathinaikos||2 - 0||Larissa|
Panathinaikos began their 2017/18 Greek Cup campaign with a 2-0 win over Larissa with Chavez and Mollins finding the back of the net for the hosts.
After a slow start to the league, Panathinaikos recorded their second win from consecutive matches as they defeated Larissa 2-0 in today's opening Greek Cup group fixture. Andres Chavez, who put together his best performance in the Green shirt, gave Panathinaikos the lead in the18th minute with a great solo effort followed by a perfectly placed left-footed effort.
The Vyssini created great opportunities to pull level in the second half, but the woodwork denied Goualas in the 68th minute and Perone in the 80th minute, before Molins’ 89th minute strike rattled the crossbar and stayed out. However, the Sweden striker doubled his side’s lead in second half stoppage time to give Panathinaikos the 2-0 victory and all three points to kick off their Cup campaign.
The Prasini sit first in Group H along with Panachaiki, who defeated Anagennisi Karditsas earlier today.
