ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Defending champion Olympiakos has seen its streak of 29 home wins in the Greek league end after being held 0-0 Sunday by midtable Kerkyra.

Olympiakos failed to score in a home league game for the first time since March 2014.

The hosts created plenty of chances, but a sturdy defense held up well for Kerkyra. In the second half, the visitors occasionally ventured into Olympiakos’ area and, with better finishing, could have created a huge upset.

Also Sunday, Panathinaikos’ last-gasp equalizer earned it a 1-1 draw at Panionios; Xanthi won 3-2 at Panetolikos; and Levadiakos came alive in the last 20 minutes to beat visiting Iraklis 3-0.

Second-placed Giannena, 2-0 winners over Veria Saturday, moved within five points of leader Olympiakos.
