Taking Peter Mandalou’s 101 assist with the AEK jersey, Niklas Eliason judged AEK – Olympiacos, reaching 6 goals in 28 appearances in the current Super League championship, having 7 assists. It is an individual season record in the league with a major league team for the Swedish extrem, after more-specific seven-had only with Nim’s jersey in Ligue 2 in 2021/22, while four goals had succeeded with the same team in Ligue 1 in the 2020/21 season. At the same time, the official Super League website refers to the victory of the “yellow blacks” over the Pirates and emphasises: “ As of 24 September 2017 AEK had to win a home championship win against Olympiacos.

Ten encounters had since taken place with AEK as a home, in which it counted five draws and five losses. This was Eliason’s first goal in the eight games he has faced Olympiacos (6 Super League – 2 Greek Cup). The Swede scored for the sixth time with the colours of AEK and all are for the league, while only against PAOK has he found twice nets. AEK with this victory broke the tradition that the two teams had created in each other derby, since there was no home win for eight successive encounters. At the same time the Yellow-Blacks were left for a fifth consecutive game undefeated against Olympiacos and tied the best performance of their history, which was first created from 1961 to 1963 and repeated again twice (1984-1986 and 1994-1997). This was AEK’s 23rd win over Olympiacos as a home team, while it still counts 25 draws, while the Reds have 21 wins. ‘
