Giorgos Chelakis commented on the “double” of Panathinaikos in Lamia and spoke of a penalty that was not given to the home team.
We are all here, we are all Stoiximan
What he wrote to “SportDay” in detail:
“It was a great result for two reasons. The first because it came after a below average performance. The second because Panathinaikos achieved it while playing with ten players, after the strict dismissal of Arao.
When a team performs moderately, this is also a function of the opponent’s performance. We knew it, but it was confirmed in yesterday’s game, that this year’s Lamia has nothing to do with last year’s. They are a solid team with attacking qualities, which they did not present in previous years. They are also – and this is due to their coach – a smart team…
Many changes to the starting line-up made by Jovanovic obviously cost homogeneity, all the more so because Djuricic did not respond even rudimentarily to his organizational duties. Somehow Lamia, piercing the Panathinaikos defense from the left, reached the equalizer with Karlitos. In fact, things could have turned out even better for the hosts if the referee had given them the penalty.
It is important that the visitors found the solutions from the bench again… To turn you around by playing with one less player is a big deal. Among other things it shows the metal he has as a team and how determined he is to go far this year. Panathinaikos got a difficult victory, without reaching high levels of performance, but got it with ten players and thus stayed at the top».
