AEK has secured top position for another week in remarkable fashion, finding an injury time winner to stay just ahead of PAOK, who themselves scored a major success over Panathinaikos.

Enosi defeated the Piraeus giants 1-0 at “Agia Sophia” Stadium on Monday morning (AEDT) in the second round of the Greek Super League play-offs, maintaining their two-point lead in first as a result.

The match saw numerous chances fall to both sides throughout the course of the match, though neither outfit was able to find the back of the net.

It took until the 90th minute for someone to break the deadlock as AEK’s substitutes Petros Mantalos and Niclas Eliasson expertly combined, with the former feeding a ball from deep into the path of the latter as he then slotted it into the goal (90+1’).

The result puts the “yellow-blacks” on 65 points as they strengthen their push to earn back-to-back league trophies.

PAOK scored an equally important victory as they defeated Panathinaikos 2-3 at “Leoforos” Stadium, ensuring they not fall any further behind AEK in the title race.

The Thessaloniki giants stunned the hosts as they took the lead in just the second minute after a nice outside-of-the-boot finish by winger Kiril Despodov in the bottom left (2’).

The Greens eventually recovered and put the pressure on their opponents, eventually breaking through via a strike from winger Bernard into the bottom left corner (29’).

The visitors managed to go ahead again just eight minutes later as striker Brandon Thomas finished the ball from close range after a quick counter-attack that was started by midfielder Soualiho Meite.

Panathinaikos failed to penetrate PAOK’s defence and would eventually concede again after winger Sebastian Palacios gave away a penalty and received a red card for a handball goal-line save (88’), with midfielder Stefan Schwab depositing his spot-kick into the bottom right (89’).

That goal would prove the difference as the “Trifylli” managed to grab one last goal through another finish by Bernard, this time into the right side of the net (90+3’).

The match may very well have been a fatal blow to Panathinaikos’ premiership dreams, with the pressure now on them to down AEK next round in what is essentially a must-win game.

Aris sealed a 3-1 win against Lamia at “Kleanthis Vikelidis” Stadium to build off their previous derby triumph over PAOK.

The Thessaloniki club struck three times in the span of four minutes to wrap up the contest, starting off with a wonderful long-range curling effort into the bottom left by winger Shapi Suleymanov (55’).

Midfielder Manu Garcia followed this up with a drilled long shot into the same corner just one minute later before centre half Jakub Brabec managed to make it three in the 59th minute.

Lamia forward Vasilios Kontonikos gave his side a consolation shortly after coming onto the pitch (89’), slightly impacting an otherwise excellent outing for Aris.

Volos secured a massive 4-1 home victory over Kifisia on Sunday morning in the second round of the play-outs to bolster their chances of survival.

The Magnesia outfit came out firing as they sailed to a two-goal lead inside the first 11 minutes, thanks to a strike from midfielder Maximiliano Comba (3’) and a free kicker header by striker Juan Manuel Garcia (11’).

Kifisia managed to get one back through marksman Ognjen Ozegovic in the 33rd minute before Garcia restored the hosts two-goal lead (45+2’).

Volos then guaranteed the points via substitute Panagiotis Moraitis’ effort in the 85th minute, though the match still had its moments such as Ozegovic squandering a chance to seal a double when his penalty was saved by goalkeeper Daniel Kovacs (88’).

The Magnesia club finished the game with ten players after midfielder Joeri De Kamps earned himself a second yellow (90+2’), though the win more than makes up for it as they went three points clear of the relegation zone.

Giannina seems destined to drop down to the second division after being held to a 1-1 home draw by Panetolikos.

The Epirutans managed to take the lead in the 25th minute through captain and striker Pedro Conde, which would eventually be cancelled out by Panetolikos forward Sergio Diaz (70’).

The result means the Agrinio side remains five points clear of Giannina with five matches remaining, a massive gap for Giannina to overcome with so few fixtures left.

Panserraikos scored a fantastic 2-0 home triumph against Asteras Tripolis to greatly improve their odds of securing a second season in the top flight.

The Serres club went ahead just before the hour mark when winger Amr Warda converted his penalty attempt (59’) before centre half Tasos Avlonitis doubled their lead in the 74th minute.

The victory puts them on 30 points, eight ahead of the relegation zone, as they now challenge not just to survive but to potentially finish first of the play-outs sides.

OFI and Atromitos played out a 0-0 draw in Crete which saw the Peristeriotes climb into top position of the play-outs clubs on 32 points.
