With a score of 1-1 finished the match between the football teams of Panathinaikos and Larissa, played at the stadium OAKA in Athens. The greens once again this night kiss goodbye the the opportunity to earn points and get ahead in the rankings, although by... 1 point. Although after the goal scored by the guests, Panathinaikos almost immediately managed to even the score, the match did not progress positively for the team and the outcome froze at 1-1.

Their first attempt to score a goal the hosts made during the third minute. Christodoulopoulos sent the ball with a headshot toward the goal post of Larissa, but it came out. In contrast, only 4 minutes later Cousin made an unpleasant surprise to Dzorvas and... the goal was a fact. The greens did not give up immediately. Shortly after the goal of Larissa Karagounis proceeded to an attack, but the ball went out again. During the 20th minute Govou tried to pass the ball to Cisse, but the goalkeeper Ambaris blocked the attack with foresight. Only a minute after that followed another shot by Karagounis, but the ball came out for the umpteenth time.

Panathinaikos doggedly pursued opportunities to even the score and the goal, although only one of the evening came during the 22nd minute. Cisse scored it, following a pass of the ball cleverly played by Vintra. Goal calmed the greens a little, who just for a moment felt that they had control over the situation on the field. The hope to win did not leave also the fans at the stadium. Guests, in turn, tried to respond almost immediately to the lost lead. During the 26th minute Simic attacked the goal post of the hosts, but this time Dzorvas took the ball out. During the 39th minute Karagounis competed with Ambaris but the latter removed the ball. During the 45th minute the goalkeeper disturbed also Katsouranis, but again no goal was reached.

The second half brought no changes on the pith. The greens were visibly confused and tired. They found it difficult to is to create goal positions and the perspective for a draw seemd increasingly true. The first attempt to score a goal came only in the 66th minute when Spiropoulos sent the ball on the outside of the net. Cisse tried to create from this a position to score but the ball went out.

The hosts clearly had no luck. During the 76th minute Larissa was by the skin of their teeth away from scoring the second goal. Makinwa sent with a strong kick the ball toward the goal post of Dzorvas, subsequently, however, it came out. Seconds before the end of the match Luis Garcia briefly made his team happy, but the ball from a headshot hit the top beam and... the greens kissed goodbye 2 valuable points.
