Panathinaikos’ soccer team managed to keeps its chances of advancing still going for the European Champions League despite only a 0-0 draw in Belgium on July 30 against Standard Liege.

The Greens missed a chance to gain an away win that would have just about clinched a spot for them in a tourney where they haven’t done well over the years.

The Belgian side pressed the Greek team throughout the first half but couldn’t crack the defense. Panathinaikos came back strong in the second half but attacks wee repulsed by Liege’s Japanese goalie, Eiji Kawashima.

Led by Mladen Petric, Panathinaikos missed one goal scoring chance after another, the best the header by Gordon Schildenfeld that bounced off the post in the 67th minute. The Greens’ top scorer last year, Sweden’s Marcus Berg, missed a number of good chances.

The last chance came two minutes from the end when Belgium-born substitute Viktor Klonaridis could not score from close range, sealing the draw.

The return leg is scheduled for Aug. 5 at the Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium in Athens. For the Europa League on July 31, Asteras Tripolis visits Mainz in Germany and Atromitos travels to Sarajevo.
