With the score 2-1 in favor of the greens ended the derby between the football teams of Panathinaikos and Olympiakos at the OAKA stadium in Athens. The meeting, which the two eternal enemies were eagerly looking forward to for, turned into a battlefield. The culminating point was just not one, the game proved to be a real spectacle, with a heroic turn in the result.

We are only 24 hours away from the meeting between the football teams of Panathinaikos and Olympiakos in the OAKA Olympic stadium in Athens. All fans eagerly await the derby, which in the case of the two teams is a kind of an unofficial final. Because the result of 30.10 will largely determine which one of the "eternal enemies" has a chance to win the title this year. The greens are 4 points away from the top of the ranking. In the case of a loss they will fall by 7 and the championship cause will become more difficult to achieve. Almost impossible in conditions in which the team is.
