-- Cretans On A Playoff Charge --
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 22
|Platanias||3 - 0||Asteras Tripolis|
|Giakoumakis 24', 51'
Platanias’ European dream is edging ever nearer after the Cretan club made light work of Asteras Tripolis, comfortably beating the Arcadians 3-0 in Chania in their SuperLeague Matchday 22 clash on Saturday.
A brace from Greek forward Giorgos Giakoumakis and a further strike from Argentine midfielder Juan Munafo sealed the three-points for the home side, who leapfrogged AEK into fifth spot with 35 points.
AEK, who are two points behind, can reclaim fifth spot if they beat Larissa at home on Sunday.
Asteras Tripolis’ miserable form continued with what was their 12th defeat of the season. Only Levadiakos have lost more with 13 defeats. Tripolis are hovering precariously over the relegation places, just six points clear of the bottom two.
