Olympiacos of many changes was defeated by PAOK a few days after its European triumph


A few days after winning the Challenge Cup at the packed SEF, o Olympic defeated with 3-0 sets (25-11, 25-18, 25-22) in Thessaloniki by PAOKin the last game for this year’s regular season Volleyball League.

The “Two-Headed of the North” was superior throughout the scoreless encounter and justly celebrated the comfortable victory, entering the playoffs with a high morale, from the second place. On the other hand, Olympiacos, which fought with many changes in its composition, experienced its second defeat in this year’s championship, but remained at the top of the standings.

PAOK dominated the first set and showed its… wild moods early on, starting the match with five unanswered earned points, even leading 18-3! The home team’s run in the first set ended with a 25-11 win and a comfortable 1-0 lead.
