After two seasons of hiatus, Olympiacos is once again dominating the Greek Super League with an iron fist. On this occasion he has been crowned champion mathematically with four days to go. The sixteen points they get to PAOK after winning today by 1-2 They are enough to celebrate a title that always had a red and white color.
The Piraeus side have only lost two games out of the thirty-two they have played. Pedro Martins arrived in 2018 and since then he has only known what it means to win in the Greek Super League. In this title confirmation match, a couple of rotations were allowed, giving entry to Rony Lopes, formerly of Sevilla, for El-Arabi, formerly of Granada.
The Moroccan striker has been key for another year in Greece. Although it is true that he has scored fewer goals (in the previous two seasons he was the top scorer in the league with 20 and 19 goals), finishes as top scorer of the team at 35 years old. The match against PAOK was stuck and, with 1-0 at half-time, El-Arabi came out and changed the game, also participating in the equalizer.
To repeat the title, the role of the sports management last summer was key. Tiquinho Soares and Garry Rodrigues were without a team and both arrived free to contribute great things. The first, scoring twelve goals. The second, scoring five and assisting the 2-1 against PAOK. Another great success was that of Aguibou Camara, a 20-year-old Guinean who signed from the Lille subsidiary and who has been a fixture in Pedro Martins’ onces.
From 2010 to 2017 Olympiacos won seven consecutive leagues. But in all these years, the coach who lasted the longest was Míchel, managing 91 games. Today, Pedro Martins already has 215. A team, champion, author.
