Volos has upset the odds to become the sole leader of the Super League after three rounds of games with its perfect record of three victories.
On Thursday it defeated visiting Atromitos with an emphatic 3-0, all goals coming in the second half of the game at the Panthessaliko Stadium.
Strikes by Kevin Rosero, Tom van Weert and Alexandros Tereziou mean Volos has opened a two-point gap at the top of the table.
PAS Giannina has slipped to second on seven points, after its goalless draw at promoted Ionikos on Thursday. It has joined by Olympiakos and AEK, that scored home wins on Wednesday.
Olympiakos trounced hapless Apollon Smyrnis 4-1 at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium. New signing Tiquinho Soares scored a brace, after Giorgos Masouras’ opener and before Marios Vrousai’s goal. Apollon coach Yiannis Petrakis has been sacked.
AEK had a hard time beating Lamia 1-0 at the Olympic Stadium of Athens, having Sergio Araujo to thank for his second-half goal.
