Atromitos 2 – Olympiakos Volou 1 (Greek Cup semi-final 1st leg, March 2, 2011) Marek Saganowski fired Atromitos into a tenth minute minute, and Kostas Nebegleras doubled the lead on the hour after the Volou keeper made an awful decision to vacate his near post as he tried to snuff out the danger. Khalifa Sankare set up a tense finish pulling a goal back in the 79th with a bullet header.

AEK Athens 0 – PAOK 0 (Greek Cup semi-final 1st leg, March 2, 2011) AEK were left ruing several good chances to score that were missed, including two Papa Bouba Diop headers that hit the bar in either half. PAOK were reduced to nine men as Lino picked up a second yellow card in the 75th minute and then Vladan Ivic was handed his marching orders three minutes later after complained to the ref about a foul on him that went unpunished.


Bucaspor 1 – Genclerbirligi 2 (Turkish Cup, March 2, 2011) Ali Kucik headed the hosts into the lead in the first half, but Genclerbirligi turned the tie around with close range finishes from Ermin Zec and Mile Jedinak.
