ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Defending champion Olympiakos barely avoided a surprise home defeat at the hands of Asteras in the Greek league on Saturday, snatching a 1-1 draw.

Uros Durdevic’s penalty kick four minutes into second-half stoppage time was enough to keep Olympiakos at the top of the standings, a position it shares with PAOK, a 1-0 winner over Panetolikos.

Michalis Manias opened the scoring for Asteras in the 55th, also with a penalty kick.
