Late surge helps Olympiakos beat Asteras 3-1, maintain perfect record in Greek league


ATHENS, Greece — Olympiakos scored all its goals in the final 17 minutes to beat Asteras 3-1 Sunday and tie the Greek league record for consecutive wins.

Costas Fortounis opened the scoring with a 73rd minute penalty kick and added a second goal seven minutes later. Brown Ideye made it 3-0 in the 86th and Apostolos Yiannou scored Asteras' consolation goal in stoppage time.
