ATHENS (AP) — Tassos Bakasetas scored twice in the first half as Greek league leader AEK Athens beat Levadiakos 2-0 on Sunday.

Bakasetas converted a penalty kick in the 12th minute for the hosts and scored again in the 33rd with a strike from just outside the area.

AEK is chasing its first league title in 24 years. With two rounds left, AEK officially has a two-point lead over PAOK, which beat Xanthi 2-1.

But much still depends on the outcome of PAOK appealing a decision that docked the team three points after its owner Ivan Savvidis stormed the pitch with a holstered pistol in a game against AEK in March. AEK’s current lead over PAOK does not include this points deduction.

Apollon beat Olympiakos 1-0, and Panathinaikos won 3-0 at Panionios.

Also Sunday, it was: Kerkyra 1, Asteras 3; Atromitos 4, Platanias 1; Panetolikos 1, Lamia 0; and Giannena 0, Larissa 0.
