ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Defending champion Olympiakos stumbled Sunday when defender Luca Milivojevic scored an own-goal in injury time to give Greek league newcomer Larissa a 1-0 victory.
A sturdy Larissa defense restricted Olympiakos’ chances and the hosts looked more likely to score in the closing minutes. Larissa finally got its chance two minutes into injury time when Milivojevic, trying to block a shot, deflected the ball into the net.
Panathinaikos and Platanias, which both played to away scoreless draws Saturday against Panetolikos and Giannena respectively, top the league standings.
The leaders are a point ahead of Olympiakos, Panionios - which lost 2-1 at home to Veria on Saturday - and AEK Athens. But AEK can go top Monday when it hosts Iraklis.
Also Sunday, Atromitos beat Asteras 1-0, Levadiakos defeated Kerkyra 2-1 and Xanthi drew 0-0 at PAOK.
