- Leto Keeps Panathinaikos Alive -
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE PLAYOFFS - MATCHDAY 5
|Panathinaikos||1 - 0||Panionios|
A late goal from Sebastian Leto gave Panathinaikos a 1-0 victory over Panionios and kept the Prasini alive for first place in the Playoffs.
Despite the win, Panathinaikos put on a poor showing in today's game against Panionios. The Prasini were forced to make many changes to their starting 11 which contributed to the below average performance. The match was heading for a goal-less draw until Sebastian Leto found the back of the net with 10 minutes remaining, giving Panathinaikos an important 3 points.
The win keeps Panathinaikos alive for first place in the playoffs. After today's draw between AEK and PAOK, Panathinaikos needs a win in Thessaloniki against PAOK to steal top spot in the SuperLeague playoffs. A reminder that first place in the playoffs leads to next year's UEFA Champions League Qualifying. After today's defeat, Panionios mathematically finishes in 4th place and will enter next year's UEFA Europa League 2nd Qualifying Round.
