Champion stunned by battler October 23, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Football.

Front runner and defending soccer champion Olympiakos’s perfect domestic record this season was spoiled yesterday by lowly Athens club Atromitos, which beat the leader 1-0 at home. But Olympiakos remains five points clear. Second-placed Panathinaikos completes Round 7 of play today against AEK at home and could narrow the gap to two points with a victory.

Olympiakos went into yesterday’s clash looking hungover by a midweek home loss against Roma in a Champions League Group D match that seriously dampened the Greek club’s hopes of making the competition’s next stage.

Also yesterday, Apollon Kalamaria hosted OFI for a scoreless draw. Xanthi, a poor starter this season following UEFA Cup qualification last season, was held to a 1-1 home draw by Kerkyra. Panionios defeated Larissa, 2-1.

In games on Saturday, Thessaloniki rivals Aris and PAOK, both midtable, played a scoreless draw loaded with yellow cards.

Cretan club Ergotelis beat Iraklis 2-1, and Aegaleo earned a 1-0 away win against Ionikos taking the small Athens club to third place.
