Video: Last-gasp Vieirinha winner sees PAOK past AEK


Former Portugal under-21 international Vieirinha was the hero for PAOK on Saturday as his winning goal deep into injury time gave the Saloniki team a crucial victory over AEK.

The hosts looked as though they may have ad to settle for a point after Georgios Fotakis’ opener was cancelled out by Leonardo, who equalised for AEK midway through the second half. The visitors were reduced to ten men when Manolas was dismissed twelve minutes from time, and the referee added on six additional minutes at the end of the match.

It was in the third minute of stoppage time that Vieirinha produced a moment of quality to win the game. The former Porto man dribbled inside from the right flank and beat Sebastian Saja with a left-footed drive for his fifth goal of the season in all competitions, and as a result saw PAOK leapfrog AEK into 3rd place in the Super League.

Vieirinha was voted PAOK’s Most Valuable Player last term, having impressed hugely in his second season at the club. The 24-year-old spent a year on-loan with PAOK in the 2008/09 campaign, before agreeing to a permanent move from FC Porto last summer.
