ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Olympiakos halted a three-game losing streak on Sunday, defeating Atromitos 2-0 in the Greek league to keep its six-point lead over Panionios.

Both goals came off crosses by Costas Fortounis. Manuel Da Costa rose over the defense in the 36th minute to head in the ball and, in the 63rd, Socratis Fytanidis tried to clear but instead put the ball in his own net.

AEK Athens defeated third-placed PAOK 3-0, leaving Panionios as the realistic challenger to Olympiakos. With six rounds left, Olympiakos has 54 points, Panionios 48 and PAOK 43.

Also, Kerkyra beat Xanthi 1-0 and Platanias defeated Veria by the same score.
