Emmanuel Emenike scored two goals within seven minutes as Olympiacos defeated Asteras Tripolis 2-1 in a Greek Cup tie on Tuesday night.

The Nigeria international who joined the Reds in the summer proved the difference against a resolute Asteras side.

The former Fernabache target man opened the scoring for the hosts in the 71st minute from the penalty spot.

And six minutes later, he completed his brace. Stavros Tsoukalas got a late consolation for Savvas Pantelidis' side in the 84th minute.
