Panionios dispatch Kerkyra to return to winning ways
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 16
|Panionios||3 - 1||Kerkyra|
Panionios kicked off 2018 with an impressive and much-needed 3-1 home win over struggling Kerkyra in Nea Smyrni on Saturday, coming from behind to take the points thanks to a strong second half display.
Goals from Giorgos Masouras, Lampros Lamprou and Thanasis Papageorgiou after half-time helped Michalis Grigoriou’s team recover from the setback of falling behind to Denis Epstein’s 43rd-minute strike and earn a valuable win.
The triumph ended a run of two successive defeats for the Panthers, who moved to within five points of fourth-placed Atromitos as a result of the victory.
Things are not looking so rosy for Kerkyra, who lie second from bottom in the SuperLeague standings having collected just 11 points from 16 matches.
