Olympiacos youth become first Greek team to win UEFA trophy

·

Olympiacos became the first club from Greece to win a UEFA trophy as they defeated AC Milan in the UEFA Youth League final in Nyon.

According to UEFA, the first hour was goalless but Christos Mouzakitis’s penalty was followed by two superb strikes by Antonios Papakanellos and Theofanis Bakoulas.

Olympiacos nearly had the lead in the 38th minute and again on the hour when Dariusz Stalmach was ruled to have handled in the box and Mouzakitis put his penalty inside the post beyond the reach of Raveyre.

The lead was 3-0 on 66 minutes following a stunning Bakoulas goal, producing an acrobatic bicycle kick from Konstantinos Koutsogoulas’s cross, securing the win for Olympiacos.  

There was only ever one winner to come through the domestic champions path before last season, Salzburg in 2016/17; now there have been two in a row with Olympiacos following AZ Alkmaar. Both Greece and Italy were represented in the final for the first time.
