Egypt striker Ahmed 'Kouka' Hassan was on target for the third consecutive game as Olympiacos crushed Panionios 4-0 in the Greek league on Saturday.

The 26-year-old opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute, superbly controlling a long ball in the area before volleying home.

Two goals from Youssef El-Arabi and one from Kostas Fortounis gave Olympiacos a comprehensive win, lifting them to the league summit with 60 points, two ahead of second-placed PAOK.

Kouka also scored in an exciting 3-2 victory over Lamia in the Greek Cup quarterfinals and in a 1-0 league win over Atromitos last week, shortly after re-joining Olympiacos on a short-term loan deal in January.

He spent last season on loan at the Greek giants from Portugal's Braga, scoring 15 goals in 32 appearances.

Kouka, who came from Ahly's youth ranks and began his European career with Portugal's Rio Ave in 2011, has 25 international caps, scoring five goals.
