ATHENS, Greece (AP) Costas Mitroglou scored a hat trick, with David Fuster assisting on all three goals, to lead defending champion Olympiakos to a 5-0 victory at Levadiakos in the Greek league Sunday.

Javier Saviola opened the scoring with a penalty in the 16th minute and Joel Campbell hit Levadiakos' post once in each half.

Mitroglou entered the game in the 65th minute and made it 2-0 five minutes later. Wladimir Weiss, who substituted for Campbell in the 58th, scored in the 85th and Mitroglou added to the victory with goals in the 89th and in injury time.
