ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Third-place Panathinaikos beat Atromitos 2-0 Sunday with debut goals by new additions Lucas Evangelista and Lucas Villafanez.

The 25th round was overshadowed by the postponement of the Iraklis vs. Olympiakos game for fear of violence. The move came four days after Olympiakos’ Greek Cup semifinal at PAOK - a Thessaloniki team, like Iraklis - was abandoned toward the end when PAOK fans stormed the pitch.

Sports minister Stavros Kontonis decided Friday on a postponement of “at least 30 days,” adding that police were already dealing with the ongoing refugee crisis in Greece.

Olympiakos has already clinched its 43rd league championship.

Also, Panthrakikos beat PAOK 2-1, while Xanthi vs. Kalloni and Veria vs. Levadiakos both ended 0-0.
