Last Saturday Olympiakos Piraeus beat Panionios with 4:3 scoreline and broke their three–match losing streak in all tournaments. Having been the regular titleholder of the Greek Super League in recent years, “Thrylos” currently sits on the fourth position in the Greek elite division standings with 11 points taken and 13-10 goal difference with seven rounds behind.
