Olympiacos faced OFI Crete this Sunday for the ninth match day of Greek Super League.
The match did not have the best of start for Olympiacos with OFI taking the lead only eleven seconds after the kick-off.
Olympiacos reacted rapidly and equalised in the fourth minute with, who else Kostas Mitroglou.
The hottest name in Greek football this season then gave his team the lead with a header.
With that goal, Mitroglou reached fourteen goals in fourteen fixtures in all competitions this year.
But Mitroglou was not the big attraction of this match. The big impact on this match was by Joel Campbell.
Arsenal’s youngster, who is on a season long loan at the Greek side, was sensational.
Arsene Wenger was forced to loan out the young Costa Rican after he failed to win a work permit, preventing him from playing at the Emirates.
He participated in almost all the attacking attempts of his team.
He was a constant threat for the opponent’s defence and he managed to end the match with four assists.
The performance of Campbell came at the most appropriate time for himself but for his team also.
The month approaching is going to be extremely tough for the Greek side as they will face next Saturday their arch rivals Panathinaikos for the Greek Superleague.
Up next they face the Portuguese side SL Benfica in the Champions League in a match that will determine which of the two clubs will take the second qualifying place in their group.
Right after Benfica, Olympiacos is waiting FC PAOK Thessaloniki at home for a clash that will decide in great percentage the fate of this season’s title as PAOK are the only real title challengers.
So a tough month ahead and Campbell just stepped up and declared his availability and readiness to help his club. Surely coach Michel is rubbing his hand with delight about Campbell and he waits for more of his players to follow his example.
