ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Two goals in the space of two minutes by Ergys Kace and Razvan Rat led PAOK to a 2-1 victory over visiting Atromitos in the Greek league Sunday.
Kace opened the scoring in the 27th, and Rat added the second two minutes later. Javier Umbides pulled one back in the 61st but Atromitos did not threaten to equalize despite PAOK playing a man short after the 76th minute, when defender Miguel Vitor was sent off with a second yellow card.
The win kept PAOK atop the league standings, a point ahead of Veria, which beat last-place Levadiakos 2-1. Kalloni is three points back after beating Kerkyra 1-0, as is defending champion Olympiakos after a 3-2 win over Ergotelis on Saturday.
Also, OFI upset host Panathinaikos 2-1 and Platanias defeated Xanthi 1-0. Panionios hosts Giannena Monday.
