Xanthi increase their impressive unbeaten streak in the SuperLeague to 10 games after thrashing Veria 0-4. Younes scored a hat trick for the visitors after Lisgaris opened the scoring.
After a slow first fifteen minutes, Lisgaris opened the scoring for Xanthi with his header in the 19th minute. The visitors comfortably held their lead into the break as Veria were unable to pose a threat on the other end of the pitch.
In the 56th minute, Veria had a great chance to pull level, but Vitti’s header just missed the target. Xanthi punished the missed chance by doubling their lead only minutes later when Younes converted from the penalty spot after the home side committed a handball in the penalty area. Three minutes later, Younes scored his second goal of the game to give Xanthi a 0-3 lead and Younes complete the hat-trick in the 67th minute with his second penalty of the game. Xanthi marched on to a 0-4 victory and earned all three points from today’s fixtures.
The 0-4 win moves Xanthi up to second in the standings as they remain unbeaten for ten consecutive games in the SuperLeague. Veria continue to sit in the relegation zone after another loss this season.
