Thanks to an assist by newcomer Ngbakoto and a goal by Sankharé, the second newcomer, Panathinaikos achieved a great victory in the away match against the team of Atromitos and proved that last week’s draw against Lamia in Leoforos was just a negative exception. This way the Greens celebrated their sixth three pointer for 2021, remaining unbitten since the beginning of the year.

The only difference for this victory, in comparison to the other ones, was maybe the way it was achieved. This time Panathinaikos has not been based on its defense but on its offensive line.  The situation having the goalposts consecutively intact since the match against PAOK in Toumba, at the end of last year, came to an end. Nevertheless, the Shamrock could find a way to score three goals and realize its objective.

The match started in an ideal way for Lazlo Boloni’s team, as only 10 minutes after the kick off, Velez scored the first goal by a header, following a cross by Chatziyiovannis. The home team reacted, pressed during the additional  time and scored the equalizer with Goutas. The second half started for Panathinaikos the same way as the first one.

Carlitos in the 47th minute, took advantage of an error committed by of goalie Yianniotis and sent the ball straight to the latter’s goalposts. The Greens were leading in the score again! Atromitos reacted immediately and eight minutes later Agayev equalized, scoring a second goal for the hosts.

The two players that a week ago signed their contract with Panathinaikos and made their debut in the match, were there to respond: In the 84th minute Sankharé following a nice assist by Ngbakoto scored the third goal for Panathinaikos. This way the Greens are now very close to the raw of the teams whose position leads to next year’s European Competitions.
