Giannina in seventh heaven

Giannina moved up to seventh in the Greek Superleague as a winning goal from Andi Lila guided it to a 2-1 victory over bottom side Aris Thessaloniki.

There were no goals in the first half but both teams were reduced to 10 men with Giannina's Georgios Dasios and the visitor's Andreas Tatos both sent off a minute before the break.

Tomas De Vincenti gave the host the lead from the penalty spot six minutes after the break only for Michalis Manias to equalise five minutes later.

Lila then struck after 73 minutes to seal all three points and leave Giannina's opponent rooted to the bottom of the table.
