ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Olympiakos beat Veria 3-0 and replaced the visitors on top of the Greek league on Saturday.

Costas Mitroglou scored in the first half, and Jorge Benitez and Pajtim Kasami added in the final minutes to end Veria’s perfect record and allow Olympiakos to move into first place, a point clear.

Mitroglou opened the scoring in the 33rd minute with a penalty kick. There was a dispute when Alejandro Dominguez apparently told Mitroglou that he was the designated penalty-taker. At the stroke of halftime, Mitroglou approached Dominguez to explain, and the latter shoved him back.

Benitez made it 2-0 in the 88th off a defensive slip and Kasami closed the scoring in injury time.

Also, Xanthi beat Levadiakos 2-0, and OFI beat Atromitos 1-0.
