Levadiakos Win to Move Back Into Top Four
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 7
|Panetolikos||0 - 1||Levadiakos|
Levadiakos impressive form continued on Sunday with a hard-earned 1-0 away win at Panaitolikos in Agrinio, a result which sent Jose Anigo’s team back into the top four with 13 points from seven matches. Elsewhere, Apollon Smyrni failed to get past Kerkyra as their Matchday 7 clash ended goalless.
Levadiakos, who usually struggle at the wrong end of the table, have been the surprise of the SuperLeague season to date, and they picked up another three-point haul thanks to a solitary goal from Ibrahima Niasse.
The Senegalese defender was on target two minutes after half-time in what proved the crucial moment of a tightly-contested affair at the Panaitolikos Stadium.
Panaitolikos came agonisingly close to an equaliser in the 68th minute when Franco Mazurek hit the woodwork, but despite piling on the pressure late on, the visitors from Livadeia held on for their third win of the season and they remain unbeaten.
|Apollon Smyrni||0 - 0||Kerkyra|
Over in West Athens at the Georgios Kamaras Stadium, basement boys Apollon Smyrni were held to a 0-0 draw by a determined Kerkyra side who played for the last half-hour of the match with 10 players after midfielder Viera Ellong was sent-off for picking up two yellow cards.
Apollon enjoyed the lion’s share of possession and were denied a goal in the first half when Gonzalo Castillejos hit the woodwork after 26 minutes. The result leaves Apollon rooted to the foot of the table with just three points from seven matches, while Kerkyra are not far ahead in 13th place with sixth points.
