Panionios - The Greek Leicester?

Won 1-0 today to close the gap from Olympiakos to just 3 points, Olympiakos have a potentially tricky game tomorrow against Atromitos at home (who have won their last 4 games and are chasing a European qualification spot).

Wont be easy especially after just a 3 day turnaround from a big Europa League game midweek against Besiktas. Fail to win that and pressure could really be on Olympiakos, especially given next week is the Derby of the Eternal Enemies between Panathinaikos and Olympiakos. Panathinaikos' players will certainly try to do all they can to stop their hated rivals from winning the title again.

As for Panionios, really would be a Leicester like story if they won the league in Greece, they have never won a league title before (their best finish was two 2nd places in 1951 and 1971) and the majority of their squad consists of Greek players (unlike Olympiakos and Panathinaikos etc, who barely have any Greek players in their starting teams and can afford good foreign players because they have more money.

Never thought Greece would be a league where we could get an exciting title race given how Olympiakos have dominated the league recently, but we do have one this year. Really hope Panionios can do it, always nice to see a new name on a trophy plus one team's domination of a competition really can make a competition boring for all teams involved.
