A ‘golden’ win for Lamia, who beat PAS Ioannina 2-0 at home in Day 1 of the Super League play-offs.
Both of the home team’s goals were scored by Vergos at 12′ and 45’+’1, while Fthiotida’s side finished the game with 9 players as De Vincenti (52′) and Manousos (90’+7′) were sent off . .
Now Lamia is 20 points +2 away from the relegation zone while Ionikos and Levadeakos are 18 points.
Vergos was in a good mood right from the start, missed a chance in the 9th minute and scored 1-0 three minutes later. Notably, in the 12th minute, Martinez attempted a shot from long range, with the ball finding Bakadimas and changing course. Tsintotas tried in vain to control and the following Vergos easily found the net.
Lamia continued to threaten and in the first minute of first-half injury time, Vergo headed in from a free-kick to double his team’s tally.
The hosts were down to 53 players after De Vinciti’s second yellow card was sent off, but PAS, who were struggling to get through and finish the stages, were still no threat. In the 67th minute, a problem with VAR brought the game to a halt, and the rest of the game passed without surprises for the home side.
