Greek Premiere League Soccer Scores

Yes, perhaps, there are not many things as shocking as a Turkish-American blogging about Greek soccer results over the weekend. But, in spite of the Greek-Turkish Cold War which unofficially from 1974 following a war over Cyprus until 1999 when both countries provided mutual relief support to devastating earthquakes within both countries which occurred just a few months apart, relations between the two neighboring countries are apparently at relative ease at the moment.

In fact, Deniz Baykara, a Turkish national, plays for the Greek first division team Panthrakikos, and Theofanis Gekas, a Greek soccer player, is a member of the Turkish first division team Akhisar.

Ironically, it was not a good weekend for either of those clubs as Panthrakikos lost lost to Atromitos 1-0 and conversely Akhisar also lost in their match again Elazigspor by the same score of 1-0.

The above image we are featuring for this entry is of Senegalese national Pape Sow, who kicked a goal for his Panathinikos in the 73rd minute in a 2-0 win over their Athens rival AEK. Sow's teammate Spaniard Vitolo kicked an earlier goal at the 55-minute mark in the win. There are now, in recent years, many Spanish soccer players in Greece, so much so that they were the subject of many international soccer stories last season. 

Greek soccer player Nikolaos Kaltsas had a good day on the field as well as he scored two goals in his team Veria's 3-1 win over Aris.

Hungarian national Laszlo Lencse also had two goals to lead his team Asteras Tripolis to a 2-1 win over Giannia.

And, the Thessaolinki powerhouse team PAOK left the field with a 4-2 win over Panionios with crucial goals coming from Albanian player Ergys Kace and Greek player Dimitris Salpingis.

Here is a look at the scoreboard:

Veria 3 Aris 1

Panathinaikos 2 AEK Athens 1

Asteras Tripolis 2 Giannia 1

PAOK 4 Panionios 2

Atromitos 1 Panthrakikos 0

Skoda Xanthi 4 Levadiakos 1

Olymiakos Pireaus 4 OFI Crete 0
