Olympiakos beats Panthrakikos, leads Greek league


ATHENS, Greece (AP) -Rafik Djebbour scored a goal in each half to lead defending champion Olympiakos to a 4-1 win over Panthrakikos in the Greek league on Sunday.

Djebbour scored in the fourth and 50th minutes to reach a league-leading six goals. A strike by Jose Holebas in the 27th and an own goal by defender Dimitris Skliopidis decided victory early. Leonidas Kyvelidis scored the consolation goal for the visitors in the 83rd.

Olympiakos has a perfect record after four rounds and is followed by three teams, three points behind. Fierce rival Panathinaikos is languishing in 13th place and hosts Atromitos on Monday.

Also Sunday, OFI defeated financially troubled AEK Athens 2-1, which has a share of last place, while Aris beat Kerkyra 1-0 and Veria beat Giannena by the same score.
