ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Marcus Berg scored twice to lead Panathinaikos to a 3-1 victory over Apollon in the Greek league Saturday.
The Swedish forward opened the scoring in the 33rd minute and added his league-leading 15th in the 86th to make it 2-1. Thanasis Panteliadis netted an own-goal for Panathinaikos' third in the 90th.
Darren Ambrose had equalized in the 80th for Apollon.
The win lifted Panathinaikos to a three-way tie for second place with PAOK and Atromitos, 18 points behind already-crowned champion Olympiakos. The other three teams play Sunday.
Apollon remains in 15th place, one point above the relegation zone.
"We deserved a point ... we just haven't had any luck lately," said Apollon coach Lawrie Sanchez.
Also, fifth-place Asteras won 1-0 at Panetolikos and Panthrakikos beat last-place Aris 2-1.
