ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Jimmy Durmaz lifted Olympiakos’ spirits after a Champions’ League loss last week, scoring one goal and setting up another to lead the Greek champions to a 3-1 win at Xanthi on Tuesday.

The result extended the club’s perfect record after four matches and came days after a 3-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich.

Durmaz blasted the ball past goalkeeper Cennamo Luigi in the 42nd minute, as the hosts struggled to contain the 26-year-old Swede.

Nikolay Dimitrov leveled after the break, but Durmaz continued to threaten and was brought down in the area by Dimos Baxevanidis.

Kostas Fortounis converted the penalty in the 64th minute and added the third four minutes later.

In other games, Veroia was held at Panaitolikos 1-1, while Iraklis also settled for a draw, 0-0 against Platanias.
