Panathinaikos beats Levadiakos 3-0 to go 2nd in Greece

ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- Panathinaikos scored three goals in the opening 19 minutes to secure a 3-0 victory over Levadiakos and claim second place in the Greek league Wednesday.

Nano fired a free kick through the defenders in the fifth minute, and then set up Nikos Karelis to make it 2-0 with a powerful shot. Abdul Ajagun added the third, slotting in an unselfish pass from Karelis.

Panathinaikos has nine points from four matches, and is three points behind Olympiakos.

Newly-promoted AEK Athens missed a chance to keep up with the pacesetters, despite taking the lead against PAOK through Christos Aravidis. The northern side snatched a 2-1 win with late goals from Garry Rodrigues and Stefanos Athanasiadis.

Asteras beat Panionios 2-1 at home, Atromitos lost 1-0 in Giannena and Panthrakikos held Kalloni 0-0.
