“Red and white” color is the first Greek “civil war” in Champions League water polo after eleven years. THE Olympic prevailed with her comfort Vouliagmeni 14-6 at the “Petros Kapagerov” swimming pool of Piraeus, in the context of the 6th matchday of the A’ group, and returned to success, after the home defeat by Barcelona two weeks ago and at the same time in 2nd place.
NOB’s third loss can be considered within schedule (like the two previous ones, by Barcelona and Pro Reco) and is not expected to affect their quest for fourth place and qualification to the final-8.
The home side made an impressive start and went 3-0 up shortly after the three-minute mark, with 3/3 to the man above (two from Vamos and one from Bouslier). This score remained until the end of the first period, as Vouliagmeni improved its defense, but did not find solutions in the attack, despite its attempt to swim quickly and find the “red and white” defense disorganized.
Olympiacos completely cut off the opposition’s supply and kept a clean sheet for more than eleven minutes, before Kapotsis scored from the perimeter to make it 4-1 (he had set up a Dervisi goal, also to the player above). With goals from Papanastasiou and Vamos in the counter, the Piraeus escaped 6-1 and essentially “cleaned up” the match, before the half was even over. The guests temporarily reduced to 7-4 and 8-5 in the third eight minutes, but the “red and white” pressed the gas again in the last period and reached the final difference of eight goals (14-6).
