PAOK bask in the joy of six after latest win
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 18
|PAOK||3 - 0||Apollon Smyrnis|
Kone (OG) 45'+1'
PAOK cruised to their six successive SuperLeague victory on Sunday, sending strugglers Apollon Smyrnis back to Athens with their tails between their legs after a 3-0 win at the Toumba.
PAOK’s Slovakian international midfielder Robert Mak opened the scoring after 27 minutes, while the home side went in at half-time firmly in control of proceedings when Apollon’s Ivory Coast midfielder Emmanuel Kone unfortunately scored an own goal just before the break.
Apollon struggled to threaten the home goal throughout, and their hopes of doing so were further dashed when Spanish defender David López Nadales was dismissed for a second booking six minutes from full-time.
PAOK piled on more pressure and got the third goal in the first minute of added time through Serbian striker Aleksandar Prijović.
Razvan Lucescu’s in-form PAOK side have now won their last six league matches, scoring 19 goals without reply during that hot streak, a record which put them top of the standings with 40 points ahead of Olympiacos’ home match against Xanthi.
