Tough nut Olympiakos came back from 2-0 down to snatch a 2-2 draw from Tottenham on its opening night in the Champions League in Piraeus on Wednesday.
The Reds were pushed all the way by last season's finalist, but stood the pressure and held the result they had secured from early in the second half.
In a weekend where the top six teams of the table faced each other, the Athens derby between AEK and Panathinaikos ended goalless and PAOK got even closer to sealing an unbeaten championship title.
Most Super League teams appeared to have the Carnival in mind over the weekend, as out of the 14 teams in action on Saturday and Sunday only six did find the back of their opponent's net.
PAOK narrowly managed to preserve its six-point lead over Olympiakos with a win at Lamia, as the Reds also struggled to beat Panetolikos at home on Monday.
It is cold December evenings on the road like this one that decide the champions, and on Monday PAOK was a man down in the second half but still managed to beat Lamia 1-0 thanks to a Fernando Varela second-half strike.
