Historic night for Greek soccer as all five sides advance to group stage

Greece was yesterday celebrating being the only country to have five teams in the group stage of soccer’s UEFA Cup.

Despite the fact that all four teams in action on Thursday night, namely Aris, Larissa, Panionios and AEK, lost their games, they all went through on aggregate scores. Panathinaikos had already qualified on Tuesday night.

Aris and Larissa, in particular, put on impressive performances to put out much stronger opposition in the form of Real Zaragoza of Spain and Blackburn Rovers of England. Spain and England will only have three teams in the next round of the UEFA Cup. Germany will have four. The draw is due to take place on Tuesday.
