Panathi­naikos beats Asteras 3-1, stays atop Greek league

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Cris­tian Ledesma scored twice from the penalty spot to lead Panathi­naikos to a 3-1 vic­tory over Asteras in the Greek league on Sun­day. Mar­cus Berg opened the scor­ing only 22 sec­onds in and Ledesma made it 2-0 in the 39th minute. Asteras was left with 10 play­ers in the 55th when Luis Fa­rina was dis­missed for spit­ting at an op­po­nent. De­spite that, the visi­tors pulled one back around 10 min­utes later with Nikos Ioan­nides con­vert­ing a penalty. Ledesma closed the scor­ing in the 88th. Panathi­naikos tops the standings. It is a point ahead of Olympiakos, which beat AEK 3-0, and Pan­io­n­ios, which won 2-1 at Irak­lis on Satur­day. Asteras is the only team with no points af­ter four rounds. Also Sun­day, Ve­ria vs. PAOK and Pla­ta­nias vs. Pane­to­likos ended in score­less draws.
