Trikala advanced to the last 16 of the Greek Cup for a second consecutive season after knocking out Kerkyra on Wednesday. The two sides played to a goalless draw in Thessaly, a result which secured Trikala second spot in Group D with 5 points.
The islanders only needed a win against Trikala and came close to stealing the ticket to the knockout stages, but Georgiou’s goal in second half stoppage time was disallowed due to offsides. Kerkyra finished third the group with four points while first place went to Atromitos, who finished with seven points from their three group games.
Larissa also celebrated a place in the Last 16 of the Greek Cup after playing to a goalless draw away to Anagennisi Karditsas. The visitors finished tied on four points with Panachaiki, who drew Panathinaikos 1-1 in Patra, and claimed second place over the Patra side due to their better head-to-header record. Anagennisi Karditsas bowed out with only one point from group play.
