Panathinaikos host AEK at Leoforos Stadium
The Athenian derby between rivals Panathinaikos and AEK Athens takes centre stage in the Greek Super League play-offs tonight.
Recently crowned Greek Cup Winners AEK will travel the short distance to Ampelokipoi where they will take on PAO in round three of the play-off mini league.
AEK will seek seeking to maintain its lead at the top of the play-off table after it climbed to the summit on Friday with a 1-0 victory over Panionios, just three days after its cup 2-1 victory over Olympiakos at the same stadium.
AEK went ahead through captain Petros Mantalos goal when the Greek international scored in the 57th minute.
Before the game AEK paraded the Cup’s trophy to the thousands of AEK fans who rushed to cheer on the players for beating Olympiakos in Tuesday’s final behind closed doors.
AEK is now on five points, Panathinaikos and PAOK have four, and Panionios has one.
AEK visits Panathinaikos at 20:30 Greek time tonight, prior to that Panionios hosts PAOK.
