Although they dominated in the field, especially in the second half, the Greens failed to win the Cup game for the round of 16 against Olympiacos.
The final 1-1 in Leoforos left open accounts for next week’s second leg in Faliro. The Greens were the only team that tried to create rather than… destroy on the pitch, but in the end, missing classic chances in the final stages of the game prevented them from getting what they deserved. For most of the game, the visitors tried to keep their backs and play with the clock ticking.
