Two extra-time goals by Algerian players lifted Olympiakos to a 3-1 win over Asteras Tripolis in the Greek Cup final at the Athens Olympic Stadium on Saturday.

It was the 26th Greek Cup for the Piraeus club and their 16th double after winning the league crown last month.

It was also the second straight double for Olympiakos.

Striker Rafik Djebbour scored in the 98th minute and winger Djamel Abdoun added a goal via the penalty spot in the 119th minute to break a 1-1 deadlock after regulation time.

Asteras, playing in their first Greek Cup final, took a 1-0 lead in the 14th minute through Spanish attacking midfielder Ruben Rayos while in the 42nd minute Olympiakos levelled after a goal by their Spanish attacking midfielder David Fuster.
