ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Late goals by Manuel da Costa and Brown Ideye helped already-crowned champion Olympiakos beat archrival Panathinaikos 3-1 in the Greek league on Sunday.

With five games left to play, Olympiakos has a 20-point lead over second-place AEK, which hosts Panthrakikos on Monday. Panathinaikos, which has played one game more, is a further five points behind.

Panathinaikos took an early lead when Marcus Berg latched on to a defense-splitting pass by Sebastian Leto to score in the third minute.

Esteban Cambiasso equalized in the 38th and Olympiakos went on to dominate the second half.

The hosts finally took the lead in the 87th when Da Costa headed in a free kick from Costas Fortounis. Ideye scored two minutes later, winning the ball off a defender and shooting past goalkeeper Luke Steele.
