Olympiacos crowned Greek soccer champions for a record 47th time


Olympiacos retained its Greek soccer crown on Wednesday, winning yet another Super League title against rivals PAOK at the Thessaloniki Toumba Stadium.

The team from Piraeus came back from a 1-0 deficit to score twice in the second half and celebrate its 47th League title.

PAOK led early on through a Thomas Murg goal from close range, but the two goals in the second half by Rony Lopes and Oleg Reabciuk gave the Reds their 2-1 win. 

Olympiacos now have an unassailable lead of 16 points with four games left in the play-offs.

In more good news in basketball, Olympiacos also came from behind to beat Monaco in Piraeus on Wednesday and snatch the last ticket to the Euroleague Final Four.
