AEK Athens 4 – Olympiakos 4* (Pens. 14-15) (Greek Cup Final, May 2, 2009) Olympiakos’ dream of a domestic double were smashed to pieces in the opening eight minutes of the cup final with AEK, Ivan Blanco heading home the opener for the Athens outfit after just four minutes with Blanco grabbing a second four minutes later. Once again Matt Derbyshire found himself the hero for Olympiakos, the Englishman turning home a short corner routine at the start of the second half. Dudu equalised for the champions 20 minutes from time bundling home the home after a set-piece. In an amazing injury time at the end of the 90 minutes Scocco fired AEK back into the lead only for Matt Derbyshire to again pop up with an incredible 95th minute equaliser to send the final into extra time. Luciano Galletti fired Olympiakos into a 102nd minute lead, the goal-scorer ripping off his shirt and vest in celebration and picking up a stupid second yellow in the process. Panagapoulos was soon also sent off for Olympiakos and, playing against 9-men, Scocco found his second of the game – a fluke mishit – to draw AEK level. A mammoth match ended with a mammoth shoot-out that Olympiakos incredibly won 15-14.
