Erythrolefki boss Takis Lemonis made wholesale changes in his team selection but that did nothing to upset the reigning champions, who claimed an important victory thanks to goals from Spanish central defender Alberto Botia (57) and substitute striker Karim Ansarifard (78).
It was a straightforward win for the Piraeus giants in their last competitive fixture of 2017, and Lemonis will be eager to continue the momentum the league leaders have built after recovering from their worst start to a season for 30 years.
Elsewhere, there was also a crucial 1-0 away win for Atromitos over fellow SuperLeague club Asteras Tripolis, with in-form midfielder Theodoros Vasilakakis scoring the only goal of the game after nine minutes.
