ATHENS, Greece — Giorgos Tzavelas and Facundo Pereyra scored a goal each to lead PAOK to a 2-1 victory at Levadiakos in the Greek league Sunday.

Tzavelas opened the scoring in the 11th and Pereyra added another in the 51st. Emmanuel Kone pulled one back in the 80th and Levadiakos missed several chances to level in the last 10 minutes.

Both teams played with 10 men from the 23rd, when Tzavelas and Levadiakos' Vangelis Mantzios were sent off for shoving each other.

PAOK remains a point ahead of defending champion Olympiakos, which won 5-0 at Kalloni Saturday. Asteras beat Xanthi 2-1 to sit third. Also, Ergotelis beat Giannena 2-1, and Atromitos drew 2-2 at Panionios. Panetolikos vs. Niki Volos was cancelled because Niki owes money to two former players. Panetolikos was handed a 3-0 win and Niki was decked three points.
