ATHENS, Greece (AP) -Emanuel Perrone scored a goal deep into injury time and assisted on another to help second-place Asteras snatch a 2-2 draw over visiting Panathinaikos in the Greek league on Saturday.

Ibrahim Sissoko gave Panathinaikos the lead twice, in the 6th and 72nd minutes, and Rayo had equalized for Asteras in the 26th off Perrone's pass.

Both teams missed other chances, especially Asteras. Panathinaikos seemed headed for victory until, in the fifth minute of injury time, defender Jean-Alain Boumsong tried to make a clearance inside his area with a diving header and the ball bounced off his hand. Perrone converted the penalty.

Asteras remained in second place, 13 points behind Olympiakos, which hosts Atromitos on Sunday.

Also, AEK beat Panionios 1-0 and Xanthi defeated Platanias 2-0.
