Asteras Tripolis cameback from a goal down to defeat PAS Giannina 1-2 at the Zosimades Stadium for the 10th matchday of the Greek Superleague. The hosts opened the scoring with Jairo in the 63rd minute before Asteras Tripolis scored two goals within 5 minutes (72’ and 77’), through Farina and Mazza, giving them all three points and putting n end to PAS Giannina’s 3-game win streak.

The opening 45 minutes were played at a slow pace and the only two chances of the half fell to Maboulou of PAS Giannina, who could not find the back of the net. It was a different story in the second half as PAS Giannina sent their first warning with Maboulou in the 58th minute and 5 minutes later, it was Jairo who opened the scoring for the hosts with a powerful header from Kozoronis’ corner. However, Asteras Tripolis completely turned the game around within 5 minutes. Farina brought the Arkades level with a header in the 72nd minute and Mazza, who was only on the pitch for a few seconds, gave his side the lead with a header of his own. PAS Giannina was shocked from Asteras’ response as they were unable to threaten in the final minutes and their 3-game win streak came to an end.

Asteras Tripolis has now won two of their last 3 games after an awful start to the season. PAS Giannina was handed their second loss as they sit in 3rd place and await the results of the other fixtures in this weekend’s action. After the international break, Asteras Tripolis will host Panetolikos while PAS Giannina travel to Xanthi on matchday 11.
