The numbers one and two of the Greek Championship clashed last night as Panathinaikos lost at home to eternal rival Olympiacos 62-68.
That’s remarkable. Because these two teams practically never lose to each other at home, but this season it happened in both confrontations! It had only happened three times before in Greek history that the visiting team won the game. The last time it happened was 15 years ago.
By beating Panathinaikos, Olympiacos grabs the first place in the Greek League standings. Aside from improving their record to 18 – 1, Olympiacos also took the tiebreaking advantage.
