ATHENS, Greece - Costas Mitroglou scored a goal and assisted on another to help Olympiakos overcome an early deficit and beat host Platanias 4-1 in the Greek league on Saturday.
David Torres gave Platanias a second-minute lead and the hosts held up well until the 66th when defender Vasco Fernandes, trying to keep a cross from reaching Mitroglou, headed into his own net. Two minutes later, Mitroglou put Olympiakos ahead with a header, his league-leading 10th goal.
In the 73rd, Mitroglou squared inside the area for Javier Saviola, who connected from close range. Vladimir Weiss closed the scoring with an end-to-end run and a powerful drive in the 87th.
Olympiakos kept its three-point lead from PAOK, which beat Asteras 2-0 at home. Atromitos, 3-0 winner over Levadiakos, is a further five points behind.
