A goal either side of half-time from Iranian defender Ehsan Hajsafi (39) and winger Lampros Lamprou (56) completed a solid victory for Michalis Grigoriou’s home side at the Nea Smyrni Stadium.

Apollon struggled to create much in the way of scoring chances against a well-drilled Panionios rearguard, although they did come close to getting a late consolation strike when Israeli forward Eli Elbaz hit the woodwork.

In the end, however, Panionios were well worth their second three-point haul of the new campaign, keeping pace with leaders and reigning champions Olympiacos, who have also won both their opening matches so far.
