Olympiakos soccer club logoGreek Super League defending champions Olympiacos have wasted no time topping the league again this year after the first 3 matches. The Piraeus club is currently in top place after winning all 3 of their games since league play started in late August. Rival clubs AEK and Panathinaikos, both from Athens, are currently in 2nd and 3rd place respectively 2 and 3 points behind Olympiacos.

Olympiacos easily defeated Panserraikos last Sunday with the rather pluralistic 4-1 score while playing magnificent soccer. The young Brazilian striker Diogo who is Olympiacos’ biggest transfer this past summer scored his 2nd goal of the season in 3 games. Argentina’s Luciano Galletti also scored a magnificent goal and he deservingly is the team’s best player at the moment.

Olympiacos is not playing in Champions League for the first time in 11 years after losing their spot to Cyprus club Omonia a month ago. However, the team is competing in the UEFA cup and they are very likely to advance to the group stage after an easy 2-0 win over the Danish FC Nordsjælland last week.
