Olympiakos beats Aris 3-0 in Greek league


ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- Ivan Marcano and Jose Holebas scored in the first half, and Kevin Mirallas in the second, to lead defending champion Olympiakos over 10-man Aris 3-0 in the Greek league on Sunday.

Aris goalkeeper Michalis Sifakis was ejected in the 45th minute for bringing down Djamel Abdoun inside the area.

The win, combined with Panathinaikos' 2-0 loss at AEK, allowed Olympiakos to extend its lead to four points with six rounds to go. Panathinaikos hosts Olympiakos next Sunday.

Second-half goals by Leonardo and Victor Klonaridis sealed AEK's victory.

Also Sunday, Kerkyra beat Xanthi, Giannena defeated Levadiakos and Panaitolikos beat Ergotelis, all with the same 2-0 score.
