Four goals (Saviola, Dominguez, Manolas and Machado) won us the match today at Karaiskaki. We had possession of the ball throughout the match and had a number of shots on goal finally managing to confirm the game as won in the 54th minute. We made a lot of attacking runs and controlled possession (sometimes as high as 70% ) but seemed to be guilty of wanting to walk the ball into the net.
After the send goal though, we continued to pressure and the reward was a third goal in the 65th minuteKallonis sat deep even after falling behind quite early on and very rarely threatened during the first half. They started to come forwards after the halftime break but without any real success, if anything it allowed us to exploit their formation even further.
Machado put the seal on the win and it was all over after that
