Xanthi Return To Winning Ways Against Kerkyra
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 6
|Kerkyra||0 - 2||Xanthi|
Xanthi recorded their first win since August on Sunday as they claimed a comfortable 2-0 away success over Kerkyra in a one-sided Matchday 6 encounter on Corfu, while Levadiakos’ remarkable early-season form continued with a late 2-1 home win over basement boys Apollon Smyrnis.
Milan Rastavac’s Xanthi team, who have been somewhat draw specialists of late, returned to winning ways in solid style with second-half goals from Honduras midfielder Alfredo Mejía and French defender Salimo Sylla.
The win lifts Xanthi up to fifth spot with nine points from their six SuperLeague matches played so far, while Kerkyra now lie in 12th spot with five points.
Levadiakos Late Show Ensures Strong Start Goes On
|Levadiakos||2 - 1||Apollon Smyrni|
Quite a story is developing up in Livadeia as Jose Anigos’ Levadiakos team continue to buck trends by winning matches.
This time out, they earned a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Apollon Smyrnis, who are finding life back in the big time frustratingly difficult.
The visitors looked to be heading for a much-needed first win of the season at the sixth attempt, but a late show from the home side with a penalty from Brazilian forward Brandao (85) and Petros Giakoumakis in the second minute of added time sealed a superb comeback.
The home fans were in jubilant mood at the final whistle as the result means they stay in touch at the top end of the table level on 10 points with fourth-placed Atromitos.
