The cup finals against Olympiacos

PAOK and Olympiacos will contest the Greek Cup final for the eighth time and paokfc.gr takes a look at the previous seven meetings.

22.05.2021

It’s a history that counts 70 years to date. A history written mainly in the Attica peninsula. One two-legged final and six one-match finals, with Olympiacos having the upper hand counting five victories against PAOK’s two. The Double-headed Eagle was the winner in the last meeting of the two teams in the final of 20 years ago.

The two clubs have made a habit of meeting in the final at the opening of a decade, as they have done it again in 1951, 1971, 1981 and 2001, and now of course in 2021.

This will be the first time that the two teams will face each other in a final at the OAKA, since the previous finals between the two clubs have been held three times in Nea Philadelphia, twice at the «Georgios Karaiskakis», and once at the «Apostolos Nikolaidis».

Let’s have a look in detail at what happened in the previous finals between the two teams.

1951

The first meeting between PAOK and Olympiacos in the Greek Cup was in the final of 1951. On March 11, 1951, they faced each other at Panathinaikos’ stadium on Alexandras Avenue, just over 500 supporters then making the difficult journey from Thessaloniki to be in the stands.

Olympiacos prevailed 4-0 (27′ Mouratis, 66′ Darivas, 75′, 80′ Drossos).

PAOK’s starting XI:

Lykaris, Patakas, Arvanitis, Psomas, Golemas, Gogos, Vassiliadis, Mouratidis, Tzinopoulos, Papadakis, Emmanoualidis.

1971

It took exactly twenty years for the next Greek Cup final between PAOK and Olympiacos and this time the match took place at the «Georgios Karaiskakis» on June 9, 1971. Angelis opened the scoring in the 19th minute for Olympiacos, Youtsos made it 2-0 in the 43rd minute, while Sarafis reduced the deficit to 2-1 in the 47th minute, only for Pampoulis to make it 3-1 after 82 minutes.

PAOK’s starting XI:

Chatziioannou, Gounaris, Papadopoulos, Chatziantoniou, Foundoukidis, Terzanidis (5′ Bellis), Mantzourakis (46′ Stavridis), Sarafis, Paridis, Koudas, Aslanidis.

1973

Two years after their previous meeting in the final, and this time with PAOK being in the position of defending its title as cup holder, they met again at the «Georgios Karaiskakis» with Angelis’ goal in the 46th minute decidin the match in favor of Olympiacos.

PAOK’s starting XI:

PAOK goalkeeper Stefas had earlier rescued his team by saving a penalty by Karavitis in the 66th minute.

In the penalty shootout, Poupakis and Persidis missed for Olympiacos, and Apostolidis delivered the final blow with a well-taken penalty to make the final shootout score 4-3, since earlier in the shootout only George Koudas had been thwarted by Poupakis.

PAOK’s starting XI:

Fourtoula, Gounaris, Iosifidis, Salamon, Sigas, Damanakis, Kermanidis (68′ Triantaphyllidis), Georgopoulos, Guerino, Koudas (75′ Vasilakos), Kostikos
