ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Marcus Berg scored with a header in the 51st minute to lead Panathinaikos to a 1-0 victory over Asteras in the Greek league playoffs on Sunday.

Berg connected to a cross from the right by Giorgos Koutroubis and headed in from close range. Asteras goalkeeper Dani Hernandez got a hand to the ball.

Panathinaikos retained the lead in the playoffs with 10 points from four games, three more than PAOK, which scored two late goals in a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Atromitos.

PAOK has had three points deducted for crowd trouble in a Greek Cup semifinal against Olympiakos.

The playoff winner will join Olympiakos in next season’s Champions League. The others get to play in the Europa League.
