Olympiacos 2-1 Panathinaikos: Olympiacos take commanding lead after controversial victory

“A stoppage time winner from Rafik Djebbour gave Olympiacos a huge victory in a crucial derby. The headline news from Ernesto Valverde’s teamsheet was his decision to play Francois Modesto in the holding midfield role, rather than Dudu or Moises Hurtado, who were not considered 100% fit. Jesualdo Ferreira started Sotiris Ninis ahead of Sidney Govou on the right of midfield – the rest of the side was as expected. As so often the case in the Derby of the Eternal Enemies, the game was scrappy early on, with the referee having to award lots of free-kicks. Consequently, the game took a while to settle down into any kind of rhythm.” Zonal Marking
