PAOK beats Panionios 2-1 in Greek league


ATHENS, Greece (AP) -Klaus Athanassiadis scored twice in the first half to lead PAOK to a 2-1 away win at Panionios in the Greek league Sunday.

Christos Aravidis pulled one back for Panionios in the 56th, but PAOK held on despite being a man down from the 44th, when Costin Lazar was shown a red card for throwing a plastic water bottle back into the stands after a fan aimed it at him.

PAOK leapt over Panionios into second place, five points behind league leader Olympiakos.

A 24th-minute goal by Toche gave Panathinaikos its first home victory of the season, beating last-place AEK Athens 1-0. Panathinaikos rose to sixth place.

Also Sunday, fourth-place Asteras beat Giannena 2-0 and Xanthi beat Levadiakos 1-0.
