Af­ter 29 home wins in league, Olympiakos held 0-0 by Kerkyra

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

De­fend­ing cham­pion Olympiakos has seen its streak of 29 home wins in the Greek league end af­ter be­ing held 0-0 Sun­day by midtable Kerkyra. Olympiakos failed to score in a home league game for the first time since March 2014. The hosts cre­ated plenty of chances, but a sturdy de­fence held up well for Kerkyra. In the sec­ond half, the vis­i­tors oc­ca­sion­ally ven­tured into Olympiakos’ area and, with bet­ter fin­ish­ing, could have cre­ated a huge up­set. Also Sun­day, Panathi­naikos’ last-gasp equaliser earned it a 1-1 draw at Pan­io­n­ios; Xan­thi won 3-2 at Pane­to­likos; and Le­va­di­akos came alive in the last 20 min­utes to beat vis­it­ing Irak­lis 3-0. Sec­ond-placed Gian­nena, 2-0 win­ners over Ve­ria Satur­day, moved within five points of leader Olympiakos.
