When #TheJoker strikes
Dimitris Pelkas’s beautiful strike in AEL FC Arena –almost a historic goal- was voted by you as Regency Casino Best Goal of April.
PAOK travelled to Larissa for their game against AEL, aware that a victory would land them the league title. But things didn’t turn out as they wished.
The team were dealt a huge blow in the first half, seeing their skipper Adelino Vieirinha suffer a serious injury. But they didn’t yield.
In the second half, the “Double-Headed Eagle” improved their display considerably and Dimitris Pelkas fired his team in the lead with a breathtaking volley. PAOK had the league title within their grasp.
The home side managed to equalize with a lucky goal. At the end of the day, Pelkas’s stunner was the only thing worth remembering from the outing to Larissa.
In the poll for Regency Casino Best Goal of April, the voters were obviously split. The duel was tight, as Léo Matos scored an equally impressive goal in the Greek Cup semi-final of Toumba Stadium against Asteras Tripolis.
The Brazilian ended up second in the poll and #TheJoker prevailed with 46,67% of the votes, ahead of Matos’s 43,69%. Yevhen Shakhov completed the podium with the headed goal he scored against Lamia.
