Olympiakos beats Dinamo Zagreb 1-0 in Champions League

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) -- Ideye Brown scored a late winner to earn Olympiakos a 1-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Nigerian made the most of a cross from Dimitris Siovas, racing down the left with no support before surging past two defenders and goalkeeper Eduardo to score in the 79th minute. It secured a second consecutive away win for Olympiakos in Group F after beating Arsenal last time.

The 27-year-old Brown also atoned for squandering an earlier chance, missing an open goal after sliding to meet a cross from Felipe Pardo.

Zagreb spent most of the match defending, although Domagoj Antolic and Marko Rog hit the post in the second half.

The Greek champions played without any fans at a half-full Maksimir Stadium over fears of crowd trouble.
