The Piraeus team was clearly superior in the first half and completely dominated the opponent who chose defensive tactics, which was ruined by the individual quality of Fortounis. However, as calm and sporty as the race on the turf was, there was a lot of angst in the stands, bringing it to a standstill for about 20 minutes after it started, due to flares and…a chair fight in the stands.
And when the match resumed, Bale missed a good opportunity to put his team ahead in the 20th minute, when Al-Arabi was confused and shot embarrassingly from a privileged position. Two minutes later, Frosai left with a problem in the left adductor and in the 25th minute, due to a mistake from Syria, Fortunes immediately took the pass to El Arabi, but Solís realized it, while in the 30th minute the goalkeeper of the home team.

In the second half, Thanasis Staikos realized how wrong he was when he turned his team back, when the hosts “weakened” and went on the offensive, since they had nothing to lose. Moreira in particular was a constant threat, unimaginably upsetting Androutsos and showing just how serious a right-back problem Olympiacos could be.
PAS’s performance showed his temperament in the 55th minute when he volleyed a powerful and graceful shot over Paskalakis’ crossbar. In the 63rd minute, Iliassos hit a header on the crossbar from a corner kick, but Mitchell’s players did not decipher the messages and in the next minute, Palmidis beat Paskalakis with a shot and reduced the score to 1-2.
