ATHENS (AP) — AEK Athens has won its first Greek league title since 1994.
Sergio Araujo’s 34th-minute strike, off a Marko Livaja cross, gave AEK a 1-0 win against host Apollon in its last game of the season on Saturday.
AEK fans, who filled Apollon’s stands, celebrated there and on a short march to the Athens suburb of Nea Filadelfia where AEK has been based for most of its history, and where it will move again once a new stadium is built.
AEK finished six points ahead of runner-up PAOK, which beat last-place Platanias 3-0.
PAOK might have been the champion but lost home games to defending champion Olympiakos and AEK. Nonetheless, PAOK fans cheered their team, shouting “Here are the real champions.”
