With 2-1 ended the match between football teams AEK and Olympiakos, which played in OAKA Stadium in Athens. AEK had a great reason for joy this evening, because it ranked second in the play-offs. 

The match began with a dynamic game by AEK. The hosts were aiming to score from the beginning of the game. So during the 7th minute Manolas fired up the hearts of the assembled audience by scoring in Olympiakos’ net. However, minutes later the player left the game because of obvious discomfort. Shortly after Manolas left the game, the guests scored a goal - the only one for the evening – Papadopoulos in the 10th minute. With this the tension on the field rose. Dozens of paper rolls and ignorant screams flew towards the players of Olympiakos... 

However, the spirit of AEK players did not fall. Last night they were in very good mental and physical condition. By the end of the half they were continuing to pursue the ball and the second goal literally hovered in the air... Players Leonardo and Blanco missed two very good chances. So the first half ended with a score of 1:1 and offended fans left the stadium. 

During the second half the hosts entered into the game very rapidly. They were pursuing goal opportunities from the first minute. It was clear that the goal was a matter of time... So it came in the eighth minute after a kick by Blanco. Positive screams covered the stadium... 

Dynamics and well-being of the yellow-blacks certainly had a negative impact on the psyche of the guests. They failed to respond to attacks and were lost in the game. Often their passes were timid, reckless and chaotic. Until the end of the game they failed to make up the loss. Very good goal attempt was marked by Yahich but goalkeeper Saha saved the ball. The hopes of the guests for a happy ending of the game ended. Another attempt to score a goal was made by Stoltidis in the 44th minute but the ball went into out. During injury time the white-reds lost their best chance when the ball was again kicked by Stoltidis but it met the hands of AEK goalkeeper Saha...
