ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Olympiakos earned a record-setting 12th straight win by beating host Panthrakikos 4-3 in the Greek league Saturday.

Olympiakos, which has a perfect record and a 13-point lead over second-place AEK Athens, broke its own consecutive wins mark, which had stood since the 1966-67 season.

Jimmy Durmaz opened the scoring for Olympiakos with a free kick in the 14th minute, but Frenchman Nicolas Diguiny equalized within seconds.

Olympiakos made it 3-1 with two penalty kicks, by Costas Fortounis in the 48th and Alfred Finnbogason in the 65th.

Seba added a fourth in the 80th, before Stelios Iliadis pulled one back in the 87th and Diguiny scored his second goal in stoppage time. Last-place Panthrakikos even threatened to equalize.

Also, Iraklis beat host Asteras 2-1 and Platanias won 2-0 at Xanthi.
