Olympiacos and Panathinaikos got their job done, one Week before they face each other in Piraeus.

Panathinaikos transformed what could have been a difficult game against Aris, into a cakewalk, thanks to big amounts of determination and concentration. Coach Djordjevic’s team will go to the upcoming derby against Olympiacos undefeated with a 14-0 record.

As for the Reds, they showed two completely pictures in the match against Kolossos. The team from Rhodes put a good deal of problems on its opponents in the first 20 minutes, but on the second half of the game, Olympiacos increased its defensive efficiency, and that automatically affected how the team ran its offensive systems.

But the greatest game of the Week, took place in Thessaloniki where the local PAOK, made a rarely stunning comeback against AEK, erasing a 24 point (!) lead (15-39) that their opponents have taken 15 minutes into the match and ultimately smiling in the end. Despite the result, AEK is still third in the standings, feeling the breath of Aris (4th) and PAOK (5th).
