After a few weeks of hard grinding Olympiacos has crept its way back up on the Super League ladder, after putting up a good fight against PAS Giannina in an away game.
The Reds were given an extra leg up due to an incredible 4-4 match between PAOK and Volos.
After six games Olympiacos have racked up 14 points after Sunday’s match against Giannina. Aguibou Camara and Youssef El-Arabi were the star scorers for the Reds, driving the ball into the goals at 17 and 84 minutes respectively. Rodrigo Erramuspe was only able to equalise the score briefly with a penalty in the 61st minute.
In one of the seasons more spectacular matches, PAOK came crashing down from a three goal lead against Volos to end on a 4-4 draw.
Volos’ Tom van Weert kicked off the first goal of the match in the 13th minute, but PAOK came blazing through in the first half of the match after Fausto Grillo equalised the score with an own goal. with the playing field level once again, Chuba Akpom took a successful strike at 30 minutes, before Andrija Zivkovic came in at the 32nd and 42nd minutes to bring PAOK up to 4-1 by the end of the first half.
Miraculously, Volos came back firing left, right and centre, as Julian Bartolo, Kevin Rosero and Jean-Pierre Rhyner all scored within a 30 minute bracket to bring the score to 4-4, thus cancelling each other out to give Olympiacos the ladder lead.
AEK brought their new coach Argyris Yiannikis, who debuted with a 3-0 home win against Atromitos thanks to goals by Sergio Araujo, Steven Zuber and Ognjen Vranjes. They now join PAOK and Volos on 13 points.
Panathinaikos put on a better display after their 0-0 draw on matchday 5 against Olympiacos, beating Ionikos 4-1 on Saturday. The league’s top scorer Carlitos was the star player of the match, scoring a hat trick in the sixth, 38th and 53rd minutes. Ionikos only managed one goal in the 11th minute after a Salvador Sanchez goal. It was Sebastian Palacios who scored the last goal of the match, giving the Greens their 4-1 victory.
Hosts Panetolikos lost 2-1 to OFI and Asteras Tripolis came back from their matchday 5 loss with a 1-0 victory over hosts Apollon Smyrnis 1-0.
