A colourful Thursday for the Slovenians at Panathinaikos: Verbič scores his second goal of the season, Gnezda Cerin registers an assist, Šporar misses from the white spot
On Thursday, Asteras Tripolis and Panathiniakos clashed, the Athens giant expectedly won the match. It ended 4:1 to the visitors, with all three Slovenians making their presence felt: two in a good way, the third unfortunately not in the best way. Benjamin Verbič scored in 31st minute his second goal of the new season, his first after the opening league game against Volos, a minute after a cross from Sebastian Palacios.
The fourth goal, scored by two-time top scorer Fotis Ioannidis, came in the 87th minute. Adam Gnezda Cerin (his third assist of the season), Andraž Šporar will want to forget the game as soon as possible. The national striker, who has been struggling in the Greek Championship this season, squandered a penalty in the first minute of stoppage time, but his attempt was saved by the home goalkeeper Nikolaos Papadopoulos. Andraž Šporar is still without a goal after five league games of the new season, but has scored four times in Europe.
