Fans boo as Panathinaikos beats Platanias 1-0 to stay in 2nd place in Greek league


ATHENS, Greece — Panathinaikos fans booed their own team as the Greek title contenders labored to a 1-0 victory over last-place Platanias on Sunday.

Facing a team that had only managed a draw in its four previous league games this season, Abdul Ajagun scored the winner with a shot from 25 meters (yards) in first half injury time.

The lackluster victory means that Panathinaikos remains second in the table, three points behind Olympiakos after its 5-1 win over Kalloni on Saturday, and two ahead of PAOK, which beat host Atromitos 2-1 on Sunday.

Also, Levadiakos beat Asteras 2-1 and Panthrakikos snatched a 1-1 draw at Panionios in the very last minute.

Veria hosts AEK Athens on Monday.
