ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Playing with 10 men for 70 minutes, PAOK snatched a 1-1 draw at Panathinaikos in the second round of the Greek league playoffs Sunday.

Marcus Berg opened the scoring for the hosts in the 46th minute, only for Haris Harisis to equalize three minutes later.

PAOK lost midfielder Alexandros Tziolis in the 20th, dismissed for a dangerous tackle on Zeca.

Panathinaikos came closest to capitalizing on its numerical superiority in the 77th when a powerful drive by Berg hit the crossbar.

After two rounds of the playoffs, PAOK and Panathinaikos have four points each, with AEK Athens following with two and Panionios trailing with one.

The playoffs winner will join Greek champion Olympiakos in next season’s Champions League, with the others playing in the Europa League.
