Fast-starting Aris see off Red Star threat

Aris Thessaloniki made a perfect start to the UEFA Cup group phase on Thursday evening with a 3-0 Group F victory over Red Star Belgrade, propelling the Greek outfit to second in the standings.

Match-winner on the day was sub Athanasios Papazoglou (pictured). After a deadlocked first half, the striker converted a Koke assist to open the scoring on 76 minutes, before effectively settling the issue with his second in the 89th minute. Koke then netted in stoppage time to round off the scoring.

<b>Red Star’s prospects look bleak</b>

Aris must now be in with an excellent chance of progressing from the section, but the men from Belgrade face an uphill struggle to qualify after losing their opening match 3-2 to Bayern. The Serbs have yet to score a point after two matches.

With each team in the group of five sitting out a round, Red Star do not feature in the next matchday, when Aris travel to Bolton while Bayern make the trip to Portugal for the away meting with Sporting Braga. Matchday 3 in Group F takes place on 29 November.
