ATHENS (AP) Aleksandar Prijovic scored one goal and created another as PAOK went top of the Greek league by beating Larissa 3-0 Monday.
Ukrainian midfielder Yevhen Shakhov made it 1-0 in the 12th minute after Prijovic nodded down a cross from Vieirinha. Fernando Varela added another goal with a diving header five minutes before the break.
Prijovic then netted the third early in the second half to help hosts PAOK go two points in front of second-place AEK Athens.
AEK beat Asteras 1-0 at the weekend while third-place Olympiakos was held 2-2 by Atromitos and is trailing the leaders by six points.
The defending champion, Olympiakos, plans to appeal after a court docked three points from its tally on Monday due to fan violence.
