Commentary

60' Domínguez (in) - Saviola (out) (Olympiacos)
He may have missed a penalty but Javier Saviola's two goals could be enough to send Olympiacos into the next stage. He heads off to a standing ovation.
57' Saviola (Olympiacos) scores!
Michael Olaitan pulls the ball back for David Fuster on the edge of the box and his sliced effort again falls for Javier Saviola. The striker makes no mistake, after just missing the penalty, hitting the ball on the turn from close range and powering it into the roof of the net.
49' Saviola (Olympiacos) missed the penalty saved by the goalkeeper.
What a start to the second half! The striker's penalty is powerful but at a nice height for Silvio Proto who dives to his left and palms the ball clear. The teams remain locked at 1-1.
32' Saviola (Olympiacos) scores!
The striker makes amends for his missed opportunity moments earlier and gives the hosts a crucial lead.

The 31-year-old is all alone in the area and drives a low shot past Silvio Proto and into the bottom corner.
