Panthers make it two out of two
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 2
|Panionios||2 - 0||Apollon Smyrni|
Panionios recorded their second successive win of the new SuperLeague season on Sunday, seeing off Apollon Smyrni with consummate ease in a 2-0 home win in their Matchday 2 encounter.
A goal either side of half-time from Iranian defender Ehsan Hajsafi (39) and winger Lampros Lamprou (56) completed a solid victory for Michalis Grigoriou’s home side at the Nea Smyrni Stadium.
Apollon struggled to create much in the way of scoring chances against a well-drilled Panionios rearguard, although they did come close to getting a late consolation strike when Israeli forward Eli Elbaz hit the woodwork.
In the end, however, Panionios were well worth their second three-point haul of the new campaign, keeping pace with leaders and reigning champions Olympiacos, who have also won both their opening matches so far.
