ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Olympiakos, already crowned Greek league champions, finished the season with a 2-0 away win over Panetolikos on Sunday.

Alejandro Dominguez opened the scoring in the 37th minute and Tarik Elyounoussi added the second in the 79th for Olympiakos, which has won a record 44th league title.

Olympiakos finished six points clear of runner-up PAOK, a 5-1 winner over Kerkyra, and 10 points ahead of Panathinaikos, which beat Larissa 2-0.
