Slovenian legionnaires were also at work in Greece, where the national team Andraž Šporar, Adam Gnezda Čerin and Benjamin Verbič with Panathinaikos just before returning home to celebrate a narrow victory away to Kifissias. Benjamin Verbič started the match on the bench, while Gnezda Čerin and Šporar were in the starting eleven of the away team. Šporar, interestingly, started the game on the left side instead of at the tip of the attack, which was a bit unusual this time.
The Cloverleafs took the lead in 11. The goal was disallowed after a review of the video for an offside in the build-up to the attack. Despite the visitors’ superior field position – they had possession of the ball for more than 70% of the time – the Athens crowd did not see a goal in the first half.
The only goal of the game came in 57. Daniel Mancini of Argentina scored a minute into stoppage time, and was replaced on the pitch by Benjamin Verbič ten minutes before the end of regulation time (at which point Šporar also left the pitch, leaving his place to Fotis Ioannidis).
Panathinaikos remains at the top of the Greek Super League standings after another victory and is the best team in both defence and attack.
