ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Tassos Avlonitis scored with his first touch in the 59th minute Sunday to give defending champion Olympiakos a 1-0 win over archrival Panathinaikos in the Greek league.

The central defender had come on as a substitute two minutes earlier and headed in Alejandro Dominguez’s free kick for the winning goal.

The win allowed Olympiakos to leap into second place, three points behind PAOK, which beat Veria 4-1. Panathinaikos is seventh, a further six points behind.

OFI’s 3-2 home loss to Asteras prompted coach Gennaro Gattuso to resign, with the former Italy great alluding to the club’s financial difficulties.

Also, Panetolikos beat Panthrakikos 3-1 and Platanias won 2-1 at Kerkyra.
